What is Wrong With the World?

28 May

I mean seriously, what the heck is wrong with people?!

There have been SO many ridiculous things happen in the news/life that I have to share in case you haven’t seen or heard about it.

Of course, we all know about the shootings in schools, malls, movie theaters, etc.

Then there was the Boston Marathon bombings.

Then last week there were the two guys that hacked up a British soldier in the middle of London in broad daylight.

Yes, that is blood on his hands. Yes, that is a butcher’s knife and a meat cleaver in his hands.  Yes, that is the poor dead soldier laying in the street.  These guys were completely nuts!  They stuck around after killing the soldier to be video-taped with their “message” of this soldier being and eye for an eye because Muslims are dying everyday from the hands of the British soldiers.  Absolutely crazy.

Oh and I forgot to mention what I saw in downtown Houston on my way to lunch a couple of weeks ago…

I was walking down the street, running a few minutes late on meeting Joseph for lunch.  I noticed ahead of me that about 7 or 8 cop cars were in the street and a few cops were roping off the street.  My first thought?  Must have been a pretty bad wreck.  I continue on further down the street because it is on my path to the restaurant.  I get closer and see a flip-flop in the middle of the street and think, “Oh no! Someone was hit by a car!” because that is not all that uncommon downtown.

I get a little closer only to see two cops covering a body in the middle of the street with a sheet.  I look around and don’t see a car that hit this person.

An officer on horseback rides up to the one next to me and he begins to tell him that this man lying in the street jumped from the top of the parking garage just moments ago.  He hit a parked car on the way down, bounced off, and landed in the middle of the street.  Right in the middle of lunch time.  I am so thankful that I was running late to meet Joseph because who knows what I would’ve walked up on if I had actually been on time.

The last two pictures were taken after the body was already picked up, not when I first walked up on what happened like the first two pictures.

I felt awful for taking the pictures but Joseph hates when I’m late and I had to have proof of what I saw.  Also, I needed to be able to show you what happened.  The weird thing was that there was no media around and I only found one thing online about what happened and it wasn’t very detailed.  Nothing on the big local news websites or anything.  I thought that was very strange.

So, people are nuts.

THEN, today I read a story and see a video about a baby being rescued from a sewage pipe after BEING FLUSHED DOWN A TOILET in China!  What the heck is wrong with people??

I am literally SHOCKED on a daily basis.  People never cease to amaze me in how absolutely crazy and completely horrible they can be.  Honestly, who flushes a newborn baby down a toilet?!  I cannot even imagine what goes on in these people’s heads.

Does anyone else feel like the world is becoming more crazy and violent or is it just that the media is covering every aspect of it now where as they didn’t in years past?  All I know is that it is quite terrifying.  We just have to pray for all the screwballs and hope they find help before doing anything crazy and drastic like anything in this post – or worse.

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer today…
