    dotsAfter the Tragedydots

    Everyday we hear about some tragedy on the news. Gigantic earthquake, car bombers killing peace keepers, massive decrease in the economy, or genocide. What is this generation exposed to? A world of hate, greed, poverty, violence, and negativity. When do you hear about the progress after the tragedy? Boy, 10, kills his only brother because he saw it on a video game. The sad thing is we blame it on something else. The parents, their religion, the music. Blame no else but yourself, it’s your decision, created by influences we see in the media. NEGATIVE NEGATIVE NEGATIVE . “Where has God gone now people question. He’s turned his back on the world, gave up on us. We kill each other, we cheat on our spouses, we call his name in vain, and we relentlessly make jokes about people’s religion, customs and idea of life. Racism, sexism, abuse. Father kills daughter after beating her senseless. Where has the positive gone in the world? Where is the world after the tragedy? Please tell me there is something more this, because the sad thing is this is the fucking tragedy.

      yes. I love your honesty.

    I would probably break it up a little bit, make it easier to read. one large paragraph with a couple ideas can be a bit intimidating to read.

      Very sad. But so true. The media is obsessed with showing only negative aspects of the human existance. Nice job on this piece.
