This is an ugly world. I have had to stop reading the news because it makes me depressed. Constant news of people inflicting pain on other human beings, animals, the earth… some times I cannot believe that these are other humans I was reading about. The things we do to each other, to kids, to anything – do we have no heart? It turns out, some really do not.
Then I get into a loop of despair, wondering how much of what we do to help actually matters.
