What is Happening to People?

I do not know if Mark Twain quoted "The more I know people the more I like my dogs". I thought I quoted it, but Froggy213 thought it was him. It is awfully sad to repeat those words, but we do have to admit that something wrong is going on with people.

I have been staying away from people lately more than I used to. I guess it is because I am trying to protect myself from getting hurt. At the same time I use that lonely space to recharge my inner batteries because I do love people and I do want to help in whatever I am needed.

I saw a share in Facebook and automatically shared it. Something deep inside my guts had me uncomfortable, so I proceeded to search for information to find out that it was a false news. It has been going around and around for years. Below I will share the information of a "supposed" letter of a mother asking for help for her 13 year old daughter who was missing.

Missing? This is not true

A better world

A person that intentionally pulls a prank like this must be emotionally sick. What is happening with people? The absence of mercy, consideration and dignity is more notable each day. We need to be more careful and a better discriminator at the moment of spreading news...the one above is false and still it is being spread out.

The H.O.W. movement is doing a very good effort in writing articles concerned with a better world. Some people think that there is no hope, but I think that we must keep doing what we have to do in order to give instruction, encourage and help. We need to do what we know what to do in behalf of this matter.

Many people are hurting others in every aspect: physically, emotionally and spiritually. We can not just stand to a side and think it is not of our concern. Yes it is! I will definitely stand up for those who can not, do not dare or do not know how to protest, declare, argue...fight for their rights.

Humanity One World

Being inspired by animals

Animals present a noble behavior toward others, they just know to do what is right. They show kindness and generosity; those good feelings that many people are losing. It is amazing the way they do whatever they can to protect and help.

Is it right to learn from animals? That is not the issue. Actually we should take everything that is good for our spiritual, moral, physical and emotional growth. Healthy people are not necessarily those that eat following a diet; not even those that exercise daily with an aerobic routine. It takes more than only physical care, we need to be emotionally balanced and spiritually strong.

Animal's love

Civilized like animals

We need to really do something; be more committed and take more aggressive actions of better examples; more love sharing; more warm words; more encouraging behaviors and honest relationships.

The song below is translated at the side. I invite you to mediate in the lyrics and to start giving yourselves to a better world.


Blessings to all!

How very true. There are those supposedly civilized humans who excel at nothing more than the creation of pain and suffering. I know there are those who do everything possible to alleviate pain, but we seem so overwhelmed by the opposite side of the population. If we take small, steady steps to reach out and not only help, but to recruit those we help to our cause, we can make a large difference in this world. Very nice article here. Well done.

Mr Archer thanks so much, very nice contribution. I like this phrase you used the most: "to recruit those we help to our cause, we can make a large difference in this world. "

In answer to your questions "what is wrong with people" I have no answer. It depresses me when I allow it to, but more than that it encourages me to keep speaking out and trying to make a difference in this world.

billybuc it is an honor to read your words, thanks. It does depresses and since we have auto control we do what we can for a better world. It just can not stay in the act of observing or pointing...it is about spreading the good seed. You did answer my question.

This is such a huge problem. We want to "jump" to help with serious issues and then we find it was a scam. We cannot let these stop us, but we do need to check sources before jumping.

I have authored many articles on child abuse and I know for a fact that in some cases, innocent people have been harmed because of false calls.

I say prayer and Holy Spirit guidance is the most important. Great hub and I pray that these people starting these stupid scams.

Voting up, up!

The song is beautiful. Sad but it gives us hope.

Sometimes the our best human condition is to ignore the horrible, and trudge forward with hope and Love. We must shake the dirt from our sandals and put our heads up high and be the light for others without hope.

Thank you for a wonderful guiding message.

Ericdierker thanks again for your comment. It does make sense what Mark 6:11 says: "Any place that does not receive you or listen to you, as you go out from there, shake the dust off the soles of your feet for a testimony against them." We keep walking but without stopping what we know we have to do and that is precisely spread love.

Very inspirational and well written hub! Sometimes it is easy to focus on those people that take advantage of others rather than the majority which are noble like animals. The Newtown shooting still haunts me because there are reminders everywhere since I don't live too far from it. I try to remind myself that there was one evil person and so many others that sacrificed their lives that day to save the children. Millions continue to help them so I still hold on to the belief that most people are good.

healthylife2 thanks. You touch my heart bringing up The Newtown shooting. Here I will post some of the haunting: http://www.buzzfeed.com/tessastuart/newtown-films-...

It is sometimes so difficult to balance mens intentions. Let's keep doing what we know it is good... spreading the seed of love and giving those great hints you are offering in your articles: http://hubpages.com/@healthylife2

Together I am convinced that even if we can't completely change the world we can make a big difference. I heard about the film and it is about mental illness but I think it's bad timing and the latest I heard was that they were not filming in Ridgefield but I will find out. Adults and children need to begin to heal and were begging the media to leave Newtown. There are so many that will try to exploit a situation but people all over the world have been there to support the families in Newtown. Thanks for your support and kindness and for doing your part to make the world a better place! You were one of the first to support me when I first joined HP and I have always been grateful.

Good question: What is wrong with the people? Hard to answer but if I may say, it is the low or perhaps bereft of moral.

Interesting subject. Well written and convenes a very significant message of hope and love back to humanity.

Thank you. Voted up and sharing.

Wonderful, All of my adult Children knew this song. They can sing it bilingual. I came back for the music, I stayed for the comments.

Sometimes we see such bad, but if we close our minds and open our hearts we see such love.

You have brought that out my friend. Para los Animales. En Amor.

Ericdierker I am about to write an article on this same direction...so much to say, so much to share my friend...so much to do. 24/7 is just not enough, the day stays short.

Thanks! I also love that song.

Morning Lastheart... what a testimony of your faith and love of life. I am sorry you and many have been hurt by others. Yes there are those in the world and even in this world. They lash out and take swipes and sometimes they hit their mark. I refuse to back away from them anymore. The best I can do is love them. Stay strong and keep up the fight, the battle can be won one person at a time. Change one life and hey will change many.

Hugs and Blessings from Canada

Thanks Rolly, you are right. Actually, I write and do other things, because it is just like you say, we need to stay strong and keep up the fight. This was one of those opening valve, letting out some negative concerns. Thanks so much!

Lastheart...enjoyed your write and I have to agree with you, the world appears to be going to hell in a handbasket, faster than a cable downed elevator. Society has accepted " Rude and Crude ", and all we can do is stay strong and teach our Children/G-C to keep the faith and hopefully realization will set in and changes will prevail.

I like you feel sometimes Animals make better friends due to the unconditional love syndrome...however some eat their own young...sorry, couldn't resist..have a nice week-end
