I just opened my computer and saw I had a bunch of comments. I rarely check the comments, thinking no one is probably reading my blog, but I came across some comments that were just plain intrusions, showing me that someone had gotten a hold of my blog, and was inserting “crazy” comments that seemed like they were from different people, but were from the same person, using different names but repetitive words of meaningless nothing. Why? What is your purpose?
In the crazy world we are now living in, I am struck by what people seem to be doing just to get attention…to turn our world upside-down for no good reason. So that’s why I titled this blog Why Do People… I’m just going to ask that question, and hope you think about it, too.
Why do people… feel the need to invade someone’s e-mail, blog, computer, credit cards, etc. just to disrupt it? To cause chaos, and insecurity? Just because you can?
Why do people… want to disrupt our Democracy, by questioning our elections, our Constitution, what the majority is legally allowed to do by law and precendence? To make noise? To give in to your base desires and wants?
Why do people…not want the best for our country by trying to do everything in their power to get rid of this dreadful and deadly Corona Virus? Has anyone in your circle had it? Do you care about anyone else but you?
Why do people… not want to change for the better, like changing their thought process on race, religion, women’s rights, police response, compromise on government issues? If we make it better for someone else, do we lose ourselves in the process, or just increase the betterment of everyone, including ourselves?
Why do people…just not want to try???? Have we gotten so narrow-minded that the hole we’ve dug is too deep to get out of? Have we forgotten that when we do for others, we actually get a warm, fuzzy feeling from it? Have we forgotten what respect looks like? Are there any adults left? Or just people with lots of money, loud voices, and temper tantrums?
The anxiety I feel from all of the above is just overwhelming. I’m in my 70’s, and I keep telling my family, I didn’t imagine spending the rest of my years in this manner, with people going in all directions, trying to change the norms, exploiting people’s privacy, being so selfish with no thought as to the end result. If you don’t like living in America, then please leave. I want to enjoy PEACE, I want to enjoy FAMILY and FRIENDS, and I want to be FREE of disease. Don’t we all want that???? To what end is anything else??? Instead of me asking Why do People… what if I asked What IF people… Maybe we’d be on the same page.
