Hi all! Brian here. I'm feeling very depressed today. Nope, it doesn't have to do with the cancer battle I'm in. I'm depressed and angry over what is happening in the world right now. I'm not going to get on my soapbox and spew venom or blame small groups of people for the ills of society. We all have an unalienable right to our opinions and how we feel about topics we are concerned about. However, that does not gives us the right to treat others horribly if they happen to disagree with us. I am terrified by what I've seen in the news over the last few weeks...no, make that months. I am aghast and horrified by the apparent glee and relish that some delight in in mocking or denigrating others who simply wish to voice their concerns.
I am extremely depressed and feel like there's nothing I can do to help make this world a kinder, gentler and safer place to live. My faith in humanity has been shaken deeply. Is all the kindness and caring I try to show towards my fellow man and woman a complete waste of time?
I am upset and depressed, and I don't know where to turn.
