    You have made a few valid points that I'd not thought of.

    I agree. The news can shock you or make you cry if you're a sensitive person, and there ratio of good to bad is overwhelmingly in favor of bad news. I also wonder why many parents aren't in their kids' lives, raising law abiding + thoughtful kids.

    Break down of the family unit is the one that really pops out at me in part because a fair number of the problems in America can be traced back to this either in part or in full. Thanks for answering.

    It seems very negative when there are so many who refuse to even consider another person's viewpoint, experience, proven facts or common knowledge. Then we have people who attempt turn turn tragedies into jokes. I'm interested in learning why.

    I speak of not only tragedy but also of sexism, ageism, racism, and forms of maltreatment of others. Some of those who are generous in one way are hypocritical in another. I wonder why many refuse to think of how they can affect others.
