I read your topic and a thought just occurred to me… and so I share.
I think the world is a mighty big place and that ALL OF THAT STUFF (the Good, the Bad, and yes… the Ugly - to finish the phrase) is all about us all the time. We are IN this drama of life… ALL of us… TOGETHER… in this moment.
Your topic beckons us to look outward at influences and reasons to what happens TO US.
Even more with INTERNET ACCESS!
I submit to reconsider to look inward instead.
I also think that we see what we choose to see in all of it.
What I suggest is how… when we have “tough” days… things look scary or ominous or devoid of reason or hopeless/senseless.
At another moment, we see acts of kindness, Charity, bonding (sadly, this mostly is visible in times of tragedy), or unity or love… all to be witnessed or felt because of music, art, Church, a hug from a loved one…
It is ALL HERE… ALL THE TIME!
Some of this is what we… through our personalized filters of perceptions… choose (willingly or not) to see.
In the eyes of the beholder…
For me… I fear I see more of the negative - but I remain mindful to LOOK for the positive and the beautiful things in life… but when I see the bad (how can we not?)… seek out the OPPORTUNITY in how to make things better… however minimal or impactful the response may be.
Oh… and avoid FACEBOOK like a dangerous plague
Just kiddin’ cuz I am also NOT on Facebook - not to judge others who are!
Very Good topic!
