The world we live on is cruel. Children are forced to grow up too fast or stop their age altogether because they die young.
We go through our daily lives with hopes and dreams only to be crushed by bullets and bombs.
Murderers are defended by human rights arguments. Apparently, innocents who try to believe or not believe are not worthy of these rights.
We try to empathize with victims only to be criticized or ridiculed.
We try to talk out the problems and we meet resistance and never ending protests.
We hear a lot of noise but without action. All we do is agree to disagree- a clear sign of either intelligence or total stupidity.
And they say we are lucky to be born on this generation – as we experience technology and still appreciate the gift of nature. But we belong to the generation who did not learn from the mistakes of our past ancestors.
Are we ready to enter another period of nightmare worse than what we already have?
“Collective thinking is usually short-lived. We’re fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self destruction.” – Mockingjay, S. Collins
Survival is an instinct of every species. Hunting and the poise to kill is a primal instinct of predators, not human.
But we have this:
“Every human being has a basic instinct to help each other out. It might not seem that way sometimes, but it’s true. If a hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city, people all over the world will send emergency supplies. This is so fundamentally human that it’s found in every culture without exception.”-The Martian, A. Weir.
This is what defines our humanity.
What’s going on is a horrible unending cycle of killing and dying. The only products are broken dreams and families, grief, anger and the desire to avenge. But what’s the point? What are these deaths for?
The world we live in is cruel. Is it really the world? Or the ones who live in it?
