Crazy world!

Blog Posted:8/23/2011 5:35:00 PM
When ever I turn on the news, I'll have to brace myself for what I'm about to view. There is so much horror going on in this world of ours. It makes me wonder how terrible it is to live on this beautiful planet that we are destroying so quickly by hate and greed!
Makes me feel uncomfortable to be in my own skin....

I agree, however if you spend some time, if you have time, with an elderly person or volunteering at a hospice or nursing home, you soon realize there are some very good things about this world and more importantly, great people such as yourself in it. It makes things look much better. I see so much love. I have an English bulldog, she is my pride and joy, I love her too. Lee

Agreed, I don't pollute, I don't eat meat for reasons of cruelty which is better for the environment. We can do what we can as individuals, human mind needs to change! I really dislike the ppl that say but dont do!!!!!!!!!!

you are here for a reason: when you feel "uncomfortable" in your own skin its time to do something....

It's a scary thought isn't it, I live in hope things will change too..I think somewhere along the way the feeling of entitlement has to stop and we need to get back to basic's, also I don't think the 'I'm just one person' attitude helps..If we all did our part things would begin to change. :) Thanks Ryan, I dont quite know why I can't close it. xxx

That's something that scares my very soul to think about :( But I live in hope and faith that we will see our need to change the way we all treat ourselves and our world. I hope you get your answers you need for your contest Tracie. xxx
