Where does it end?
It's difficult for me to enjoy how much we have and the small pleasures that are occurring in my tiny world when all I can focus on is the chaos that has befallen humanity. Events like the above make me question if I really ever want to have children in this fucked up world. As I tried to sleep last night, my mind reeled. Where can we place the blame for things of this nature? There is no one person that can be blamed, but abstract concepts:
How do we fight something that has no face? no body? no origin? How do we right the wrongs that have developed over centuries? How do we fix the damage originating with our ancestors use of colonialism and imperialism? Issuing a public apology is no longer enough. Nor should it be.
Remember there is beauty, good, and love left in the world... right around the corner.
Love will win in the end....
