How is any sane person to live with what is going on in the world? My poor grandchildren, when they come to read about this era will think we were totally out of our minds with fighting over religions and tribal areas.
What can a single person do about it? Not much.
I watch the news locally to find out which freeway is down, and the morning murder report never fails to throw up some scene of carnage.
The fighting going on in Ukraine, Syria, Gaza, and other hot spots give no hope that we will ever return to a peaceful time in this world.
The water situation is no more hopeful, and the diminishing supplies show that we have to get our priorities straightened out before the rich really get persecuted for having more than their fair share.
Living in a gated community and guarding their riches is not the solution to the inequality between large segments of our population. The gap is growing, and will lead to more armed conflicts, not only in far away places, but in America too.
So to my little grandsons, I apologize for the mess. Hope you can do better.
