    How Far Down

    It isn't difficult for anyone to see how our society has changed.  In some ways it has changed for the better but for the most part I see where it has changed for the worse.  There is more bad than ever in our world.  Yet, many continue to say we need to progress...

    Though I do have enough faith in humanity, to be positive there are a lot of people out there who are willing to help another along the way. It really is the only solution..... not governments, police or welfare ! We need to remember that we are all on this journey through life...

    Barely Scratching the Surface..

    others even if they are doing something for others they usually have ulterior motives the amount of hatred I feel Coming from some people to others is astonishing it's like the word kindness isn't even a word.

    We Are Not Who We Used to Be

    We are not the enlightened and all-inclusive society some people claim we are.  Far from it.  We try desperately to control one another but have a dire lack of self control.  We live in a society supposedly advanced, but has so little control over its darkness...
