We’re a country beyond lucky to not be plagued by civil war or other uncontrollably horrific things. We don’t have rebel armies and corrupted governments or an extensive child labor problem or a major human trafficking problem. We don’t have famine or horrific disease or radiation left from chemical plant explosions across the entire country. We aren’t in the midst of nationwide crop failures and we haven’t been hit by several consecutive major natural disasters in a long time. Though our country had problems, though individuals and communities in our country do suffer more than most of us could imagine, as a whole, America is a lucky, prosperous state. So why screw that all up by trying to wreak havoc on everything around you?Shootings, gang violence, bombs, I hate to get all hippie-world-peace but seriously, where’s the logic? Let’s take advantage of the fact that we are far luckier than many, many others in the world, and try not to screw it up?
