Apathy - The Silent Killer

20 June 2014, 12:27
Yes, just another day in South Africa and the headlines that passed before my eyes included…

Teacher, pupil injured in school shooting
Man held for murder of nun, 82
Wife killer gets 10 years
Man appears for rape, murder of teen girls
Orderley in court for sex bribe
And that’s beside all the other murder and mayhem.

Isn’t anyone else tired of this? And we just sit around and do nothing about it. We listen to people justifying, “Oh, this is a global problem, it’s TV, its bad parenting, its low moral values” or how about this one…”they’re just kids. Kids will be kids what’s the big deal?”

When are we as a society going to stop and say, “Enough! Enough pain. Enough heartache. Enough!” 

When will we see that children are not mini-adults and don’t have to be! They can and should enjoy their childhood and grow up into a better world – not one being torn to pieces by immorality and hatred, prejudice and fear.

When will we put our collective foot down and say, “No more. Not here. Not now!” and do something?

Do something! Anything! It would be better than this apathetic – nothing can be done – attitude that is driving me crazy.

If every one of us did something, said something, things would change! They would. There is no doubt about it – but what do we do… sit back and watch… like Nero watching Rome burn!

Damn….
DO SOMETHING! ANYTHING! STAND OUTSIDE AND SCREAM AT THE UNIVERSE…. WHATEVER…. 
JUST GET OF YOUR BUTT AND DO SOMETHING….

Young and living on purpose

I remember when I was 16 years old and addicted to marijuana (dagga). I’d always been a curious kid and it was this curiosity that led me down this path. It started quite casually.  Read more...
