All around the world is seen
Eyes firmly fastened
On unseen power within
On the eternal
Kept in perfect peace
In the centre of your will
Are you bothered by what you see in the news? I am. Does it cause you to think, “What the heck is up with this world?”
It seems like things are out of control. Like there’s anarchy and chaos happening everywhere. When I hear of different events such as the following, it makes me uneasy:
- A 12-year-old girl being stabbed in the USA 19 times by her friends.
- The gang rape of 2 teenage girls in India.
- 18 people killed in a car bomb explosion in Nigeria.
- Economic and political unrest in various parts of the world.
I have to wonder what people are putting their hope in now-a-days. It seems to me that, if humans are able to do atrocious things like the above stated, how can we put our hope in humans? I really don’t want to sound like a kill-joy, and I certainly don’t want to be a negative person. However, I do want to be real and deal with real issues.
So back to you. Are you bothered by what is happening in the world? What do you think causes people to do atrocious, inhuman things? What do you put your hope in?
