I think that time has changed a lot of things, especially the way we communicate and see things because of the media. Nowadays, we hear from every kind of horror and tragedy every single day. Sometimes next door, or a little farther, people kill strangers, friends, family etc... Drama is the background of our life, so no being chocked by something that has become a constant companion...soundtrack.
There has been a dehumanization of the human being himself. People are careless about human life because we have transferred so many things from the human power to the machine, to the money. So many things that required human interraction can be done from a machine, on the phone, on the computer, etc... We have removed the power, the interest from the human to the money and the machine. So, our eyes and interest are attracted by the machine and the money brecause they are the ones which get things done. Only Human beings who have the power (money and or machines) are important today.
Thanks God, they are still conscious human being...and more people are waking up from that bad dream we have been experiencing for a while now.
Let's be aware and make sur that we send a letter to a friend, give a phone call to another, go sit with our family to eat looking at each other and talking to each other. Wake up and stay awaken!
Love and peace
To answer the previous response, my father refused to leave his vacation to take my mother who was in a coma back home so she could be saved!
