Faith In Basic Humanity Is Gone

I haven't written in a while. Not because there is a lack of what to talk about, but because so much is happening in our world. It at times feels like everything is falling apart. My husband and I look at each other just perplexed at how far off track our country has gone, and wonder why our President seems so oblivious to it all. He flits off for another round of golf, or takes date nights on the tax payer's dime. All told, since he took office he has been on vacation 26% of the time he has occupied the White House. This does not count the holidays and weekends that are family "non-working" days. Now we are at war, YES I SAID WAR. I don't buy the new vocabulary "kinetic military action", much like I didn't take the bs change of vocabulary from acts of terrorism to "man made disasters". Where is our leader? Out golfing. Why are we helping people we fought in Iraq? Why are we supplying guns and ammo to a group that is too stupid to conserve their ammo and shoot in the air all the time??

I don't understand our country anymore. Sex is now just an empty thing thanks to the porn industry and ever increasingly sexualized media. It is no longer a beautiful event between two loving partners that brings forth life. No! If you find yourself pregnant, it is considered a burden. Punishment. A baby is now the same as having an STD.
“Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.” - Obama
The family unit is devalued at every angle. Women are told that you cannot find fulfillment unless you work outside the home. Abandon your children (if you were too stupid to kill them first), and heck, let your husband have an affair because studies now show that infidelity is "healthy"? WHAT?? Yes, THIS (click on highlighted wording for more info) insanity is touted by a psychologist as good for women.

I am uncertain of the world my boys will be adults in. It terrifies me, how far from faith and love our country has run from. It seemed, for a time that there was so much possible. Civil rights were really making gains. People were more accepting of others. More forgiving. People stood up for others and protected each other. Now, people stand around and will watch a pregnant girl and her boyfriend get beat up by a group of thuggish girls. No one says a word.

Security guards stand slack jawed as a girl is beaten to a pulp by yet another group of "girls" and I use the term girls loosely because women and girls should NEVER act this way!
I just don't have any faith in humanity anymore. I see union bosses calling for violence in the streets to get their way. I hear politicians advocating the violence. Our own President telling the youth of Egypt to rise up, then sits back and watches the violence spread. "NOTHING comes from violence, NOTHING ever could" to quote Sting.

Could it be, that it is too late now. Too late to turn back the tides of division and destruction? I am afraid it may be. What can anyone do to protect the ones they love? I think, if enough of us live as true as we can and love our children deeply and do our best to earnestly teach them to love, and respect all life. Instruct the young to strive for the very best in themselves and each other. Mercy, and charity have been forgotten and need to be rediscovered. This society is rotten to the core and will collapse. Just you wait. Life cannot be sustained in any kind of quality, when charity, mercy, respect and love for life are abandoned. We sacrifice children at the alter of vanity and selfish desire. Do we dare to believe that we will continue our barbaric ways without retribution? Look back on all the empires that fell at what seemed to be the height of their success. They were fraught with debauchery, murder and greed. We are no better than the Romans killing, binging and having sex with anyone and anything.

What will you do to keep the bloody tide from reaching YOUR door? Will you gather your courage and speak out? Will you become more diligent in teaching your family the values our country has abandoned? I hope so. I hope more will do so. Because as long as no one even tries to slow this train down, our end will come much sooner than anyone expects.

I like your post and I feel your frustration. Perhaps a radical shift in perspective could be as helpful for you as for many of us - and you could feel as though you are doing something productive to turn the tide! http://miraclesawake.wordpress.com
