This World is Getting Too Crazy…

I know I have already used this piece but I thought it illustrated how I have been feeling the last little while with everything that is going on.  I’m not sure if every presidential election for this country has had the same dividing results, or if I am just more aware of it this time, but it is INSANE! I can’t believe that people are getting so uptight and nasty about it all.  What’s done is done, and getting angry and showing so much hate isn’t going to solve anything.  I have had people cut all communication with me and be quite rude and hurtful because of how I voted in this election.  If we are going to let Trump divide this country, he is NOT the problem. WE are the problem.  People don’t like him because he hates so many different groups of people.  Well, then we are guilty of the very same thing and have ZERO moral authority to get upset.  We are all hypocrites and none of us are perfect, so we all need to get over it, be the best we can be, do everything we can to make the world a better place, and look forward.

A couple weeks ago, a student stabbed and injured 6 other students and himself in attempts to kill all of them.  This happened at a high school about a mile from where my brothers go to school.  According to police reports, this student had no intention other than to kill as many people as he could before killing himself just to see what it would feel like to kill people.  WHAT??

I also got some inside scoop on something else.  They don’t have enough evidence yet and it isn’t my place to share, but just take my word for it, it’s also INSANE.

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THIS WORLD??? I can’t even believe it!  Just when I think it can’t get worse, it does.  Everything in this post has only happened in the last month.  I could write pages and pages about everything that had happened before that, but this month just set me over the top.

There is SO MUCH hate.  It is EVERYWHERE.  If you think about it, almost every problem in the world can be solved if we eliminate hate and selfishness.  If we would all just come together and love, we could solve so many people’s struggles.

Even though it’s hard sometimes, we can’t just sit around and feel sorry for ourselves.  We need to be the change we want to see in the world.  Ready? GO! Change the world.

  1. Hi, Shaylee! I love that you are thinking deeply about things going on in the world and that your art reflects your feelings. Having lived through many presidential elections, I can tell you that they are not all this divisive! However, we know from the scriptures that things are going to be in more turmoil as we get closer to the Second Coming of our Savior. Evil will be looked upon as good and good as evil. We see it all around us. But, we can’t despair! We can still find peace. The savior said, ” In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) He also said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27) Those two scriptures give me great comfort. We can never lose hope no matter how bad things get for Christ has overcome the world. Be that shining light for others to see and follow! Love you!
