Friday Stir Fry - Why?
Why are people so mean? What makes a person want to blow up a bomb or enter a school with guns and intentionally kill and mame people? Every time it happens, I ask this question. I think it goes beyond mental illness. It is a disconnect with people. Somehow they have lost empathy with other humans.
I have to admit there are times I don't like people. Especially in my line of work. But I can't even think of a scenario where I would think of hurting anyone.
I didn't grow up in a world like this. And I feel sorry for the children of today who will not remember a time when these things didn't occur.
We all need to remember the good in people. Like that viral video of Mr Rogers saying "look for the people who are helping."
Hopefully there will always be more of us willing to help than destroy.
