|Puppies for peace!|
Another school shooting, the 74th since Newtown in 2012 (http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/troutdale-oregon-home-latest-us). And, didn't two people walk into a pizza parlor just last week and shoot two policeman point blank? We ask why? Why so many? Why so young?
My sister, the therapist, told me that researchers are looking into the impact that Social Media is having in teenage suicide.... that Facebook memorials to teen deaths may actually trigger others to do the same in an attempt to be memorialized.
Hate/Anger/Rage... Have we become a nation unable to think critically, to assess fact from fiction? Have we become so passionate about a belief that we're willing to post without researching the truth? And, why do our beliefs have to be be encased in hate? Or violence?
You're right... this is America and you have the right to free speech. I applaud that! And I do not judge...
Social Media has made it so easy to promote some thought or a message. Some of that is very good. What is very wrong , is the level of hate/anger/violence in some of your messages and this is what I deplore. You don't get to wish people harm... You don't get to promote killing! That is where I draw the line.
Think first, research and understand the context of what you promote.
Think first, research, understand the context of what you want to promote AND then, do it in a thoughtful, peaceful manner. Promote peace not violence. Strike out against the hate before everything else...
Sigh... I hope my angry driver made it home safely... I did.
