Reblog from earlier post…cos I have no words. I have given up on the news but news is all around me and whether or not I bury my head in the sand… the craziness carries on like a festering wound continuously picked at by callous, inhumane mob mentality fuelling each other on to even more frenzied violence everyday.
Is there a line in the sand? Can it ever end? Is there a salve for this festering wound? This evil…this hate…this unforgivable ignorance?
It is numbing…violence is numbing resulting in calloused hearts…averted eyes…shrugging shoulders. (Yes, the world has gone to pot…actually no…man's inhumanity to man is just so much more apparent because it is documented more). We are numbed, acclimatised to horrific acts of violence all around us. Mob mentality…shrugging. We have always known how wicked man can be…so we applaud acts of kindness.
It is not survival of the fittest…(that mantra that is repeated again and again) brainwashing us into calloused, shoulder shrugging indifference.
So never stop protesting, documenting, helping…stand and be counted as humane. The pen is far mightier than the sword. Just doesn't seem like it as bodies fall. Silence is not an option.
I cannot bury my head in the sand…shut my eyes to the craziness around us. Neither can you.
