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.
You have made a few valid points that I'd not thought of.
A skilled beggar can pull in at least $500 a week in some cities in America.
I think most anything is possible Sri T however, one can help the homeless without giving them money directly. Suzanne did provide a good example of a lack of empathy with the Society of Pretty Dogs v/s a homeless person scenario.
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'm not sure for certain your meaning. Tragedies as in media shown tragedy contrasting the death in the family, a pet, or loss of a job after 20+ years of working and not eligible for Soc Sec. There are many kinds of tragedy.
There are many examples but just one would be the case of the young girl killed by the boy whose prom invite she declined. I've heard jokes about this and seen many in comments. Just makes me wonder where's the empathy for those left behind.
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.
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.
