I don’t usually post on weekends, but I was up early and just needed to put this out there.
Do you watch the daily news? I grew up watching every morning with my mother as we would be getting ready for school and work. We would talk about the news stories and usually agreed that they rarely had anything good to say. Well guess what folks? It hasn’t changed in 35 years. Still not much in the way of good news at all.
Today, being Saturday, I was hoping for some interesting human interest type stories, but noooo, they had to go and ruin my day with lousy, evil people and the crappy things they do to each other.
There was recently a fantastic news item concerning the picture of the Black Hole in space that NASA put out, and the lovely young woman that helped put it together. A couple of days following that story, social media had a literal field day with this poor woman, and her reputation. She has been totally ripped apart in social media outlets. Why? Because people are jealous. They can’t just be happy for someone that is doing well in life, they have to try and ruin it to make themselves seem bigger than they are. These people will get away with all of it. Disgusting.
Second, they talked about the burning of several historically black, or African American (whichever you prefer, I don’t wish to offend), churches. Really? A freaking church?! The amount of hate and evil a person must hold inside to actually burn down a House of God just amazes me. I mean, what could anyone possibly have against an entire church congregation? Much less multiple churches? The hate and prejudice in this world is depressing and infuriating! They got the person responsible, thank Heaven! Nevermind what I hope happens to him.
Then the story of a man (with a previous record) that threw, yes, THREW, a five year old boy over the 3rd floor railing at the Mall of America in Minnesota. A total stranger just picked up a random five year child and threw him over a third floor railing to land all the way down on the first floor. DO you know what a mall floor is? I do. It’s tile, but under that tile is concrete. That child landed three floors straight down onto concrete. He is in intensive care in the hospital fighting for his life. Again, the police got the person responsible. Thank Heaven!
At this point, I could take no more, and changed the channel to Animal Planet. Always better programming there!
So, once again, I guess I will stick my head in the sand, at least for the weekend. My moods swings are too unpredictable to handle that kind of crappy news! I think we need a good news show that only broadcasts the good stories. I’m tired of hearing how evil people are all the time, aren’t there any good, kind people left?
Have A Wonderful, and Wonder-Filled Day!
Don’t Forget To Smile! There Contagious!
