The world is changing at a scary place. People seem to be loosing the compassion and kindness to others. The community spirt which once was is slowly fading if not already dying out.
There was a saying I remember from college “it takes a village to raise a child”. This is very true. Back in the 1940’s (and probably before and after that date too) people would watch over people’s children whilst they nipped to the shops, helped each other without wanting anything in return. Helped if there was a problem and called the emergency services if need.
Now let’s skip forward to 2016. Where smart phones seem to be out when somebody does something wrong so people can shame them via Facebook and other media outlets. Where people stand and film somebody being attacked or in a accident. What happened to talking to people or writing a polite description or just say “hi if you were her between 9 and 10am please contact me”
What happened to reporting things to the police before you name and shame. There was a post regarding a local shopping center of a attempted abduction of a child. Before I shared (it was already shared by 100 ‘s of people) I sent a quick email and the shopping centre didn’t know anything about it and the lady blocked the account from them. Where do people get of with lies and shaming people for no reason?
Why do people think it’s fine to get away with shaming and accusing people?
With so much technology there is now cyber bullying also known as trolling. This can happen to anybody you can be at work, school, blogger or just somebody minding your own businesses. If it happens to you do report it the police take this seriously. It can destroy families and lives.
There is so much voilance in the world it is a daily occurnace. The good things people do are hardly mentioned. The bad things how ever are. With growing threat of terrorism around the world most countries are on high alert.
I’m not saying there wasn’t terrorism back in the 1940’s or before that date. There were wars the biggest terriosim of all.
I’m not saying the world will get worse, I’m not saying this world will get better. What I am saying is if everybody makes a little difference, going to speak to the mum who looks unhappy at a toddler group, helping somebody get a trolley or help get something down of the shelf, a simple smile, a simple please and thank you will slowly make the world become a better place and hopefully compassion and kindness will return.
