What is happening in this world lately. Every time I get on social media someone has been shot, a kid has committed suicide due to bullying, another kid is missing, someone is killed for being transgender, innocent by standers are being shot and killed during a shoot out with the cops, and the list goes on. What the heck is happening?
I’m sorry but something isn’t working. Somewhere along the line we made a wrong turn and now our homelessness is at an all time high, teen suicide is at an all time high, racism is bearing its ugly teeth, hate is smeared everywhere and everything is labeled as mental illness.
My heart is so heavy. It’s no wonder everyone is so anxiety ridden. Look around you people, stop pointing your finger at everyone and open your eyes. We created this issue. We not one race, not one sex, not one person, we the people…all people.
We stopped teaching children how to deal with rejection and started worrying about hurting their feelings. How does a kid learn to deal with their feelings if they are never allowed to face them? We stopped teaching them to love and to love themselves.
We took God out of everything and then asked why is everything falling apart. I know I have tons of friends who do not believe in God and I have never pushed my views on anyone of you. But to me this is as plain as the nose on my face. God is love and we took love out of everything. We took the heart out of the body but expected it to keep beating. It doesn’t work that way.
We stopped teaching kids morals, values, respect and then we wonder why schools are being shot up, why bullying has become such a huge issue, and why families are broken.
I grieve for a simpler life where we played outside and weren’t scared the kid we were playing with was packing. I grieve for a life that doesn’t exist anymore and I grieve for my kids that will never know what it’s like to not be
We have to do better, we have to teach our children better
No wonder I can never sleep. My heart is just to heavy.
