The news has always been catastrophically depressing.
But I’ve noticed the vibe of news stories especially of this year to have taken on an alarmingly disturbed pitch.
I cannot flip on the news channel nor can I look at my FB feed without reading or seeing something that resembles a dystopian story from an acid-induced trip to Mad Max or the Hunger Games.
Complete strangers are killing each other other trivial things.
People fist fight each other on social media with words.
Cruelty abounds when it comes to how we treat each other on every level and the other species that co-exist with us.
The planet is turning into a trash heap.
A little more and the dam will break.
We’re ready for war.
I’m not talking teeny tiny I-don’t-know-it’s-happening war.
But all-out doomsday.
I hope I’m wrong but probably onto something here.
Let’s hope, yes hope.
I still do that sometimes. Hoping humanity changes it’s ways before it’s too late.
