The State of the World

I think the old addage goes, "You can tell about a nation by how it treats its young and old," or something like that. You get the point. Well i want to talk about the state of the world and how kids are being treated.

It seems like recently there have been a rash of incidents involving kids. Adults killing kids, kids killing kids, wars killing kids. It seems like everytime i turn around i either see or hear about a child being molested or killed by an adult, or hear about an amber alert. The latest have been incidents where the dad brutally killed his daughter and her friend. Now this 13 year old girl is missing in Aruba. I don't get it. What is wrong with our societies where we have people defiling and killing our youth? I don't understand where we have gone as a society.

I think the media has something to do with it. First, i think this may have been going on a lot in the past, but now it's national news everytime something happens. Personally i don't think i need to hear about someone getting kidnapped in Cali and i'm in MO, unless they may be heading this way. Everything is not news. But, i think the media covers these events much more than they used to. Two, all these shows on TV have driven society mad. Now parents have their kids trying to win pageants ala Jean Bennet. These little kids have no business dressing like they're grown-ups. I think some of the parents have bought into the Britney Spears syndrome. Dress up like a skank to mask your lack of any real talent. Third, where have all these pedofiles come from lately. They just seem to be popping up like crazy.

I think i have more to say but i'll leave it at that. Just some random thoughts on the issue. What's your take?

The world sucks. But life goes on. One opinion on this, not an original idea from me but it comes from a very reputable source:

2 Timothy 3: 1-7
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

That’s deep
