I think the whole guns killing thing is a barrier in languages.
I'm fed up with it too honnestly. I'm fed up with people in general...being so stuck on themselves and their worlds that they can't open their eyes to see others.
I'm tired of it, but there's just not much I as an individual can do.
I've gotten a recycling program reinstated here at my company. I'm now working on getting them to give incentives to employees for purchasing more fuel efficient vehicles/carpooling/using the mass transit systems.
I ride a motorcycle to work every day to cut down on congestion/smog/wear and tear on the roads.
I do a lot of things on my part that I believe help make the world a better place. however, I can't be brought to my knees when other people can't seem to get it through their thick heads that they need to be doing the same.
It's the same with the killing in other countries.
What about the genocide going on in Africa? the war on Aids? All of these things.
There's very little I as an individual can do to change any of it.
All that I can do is to try and lead my life as a positive influence on those around me.
For instance, my being hell bent on recycling anything and everything I can has now gotten my husbands family to do the same...now if only my mother were a little more open minded. now if only my husbands sister and her husband would see that driving an SUV is NOT any safer than a car, etc.
Getting into fights over the internet about the war will do nothing but upset everyone. Living your life to the point where you MIGHT be able to influence those around you is something completely different.
I'm all for DISCUSSING politics. I love a FRIENDLY debate. I love the thought processes, I love seeing new points of view. I love thinking through things rationally and playing the devils advocate. however, ARGUING is completely pointless, moreso on this topic.
