What is Wrong With This World???

'ThisImage via Wikipedia

I don't know how to start this post (well, actually, I wrote it , the whole flaming post, and mysteriously it dissapeared)...
Yesterday's events left me speechless, full of bitterness and other words ending in "ness". What happened, exactly? Well, one woman killed another one, in broad daylight, in our neighbourhood. Yes, you read it correcly. In OUR neighbourhood. The killer, amother of two, STABBED to death her neighbour. The victim was 8 months PREGNANT and a mother of three. And it all happenned because of a quarrell over spilled coffee...the lady just got angry and stabbed her neighbour, really, no biggie...
The victim was taken to the hospital and her baby was delivered by C-section while her/his mother was dying on the operation table.

THIS WHOLE STORY JUST MAKES ME SICK!

What is wrong with this world?
In yesterday's paper I read about a father that was abusing her daughters' friends, another time about a father abusing her daughters. A father killing his daugher, another one killing his son. A mother drowning her son. A gang rape that went on for years. A sect whose members (mothers and fathers alike) tortured and starved their children in order to "teach" them "some discipline". All of it happening here, in this country, in this world.

Oh, I see...maybe I was abducted by aliens, and this is not the Earth, cradle of mankind, home of intelligent beings, but some savage planet, populated by angry, murderous mutants...Or maybe I am having a nightmare, and I'll wake up and everything will be as it should and I'll continue living in a world where love and compasion are the leading forces...
I feel a huge responsibility on my shoulders, towards my children. What was I thinking when I brought them into this world? How am I going to protect them from the beasts with human faces? I feel nauseated and helpless...
What is wrong with this world?
What is wrong with you people?
I feel I have to shout this over and over again, maybe somebody will hear me...
But, aside of all the capitals and exclamation and question marks, I think we have lost the battle with the darkness within...and it creeps on us, slowly, eating up our last traces of humanity...

This is precisely why I'm not so updated with the current events. This kind of news only depresses me but the upside is it also leads me to be thankful of my life more for what I have.

Unfortunately none of what you described is unique to our time. It is just information flows freely. :( Truly, humans have always done horrible things, we just never heard about them.

So sad to hear about this. The whole world is blending into one violent entity filled with demons.
How I remember Eretz Yisrael HaYaffa, at least 50 years ago up until the early 70's. We were still one community and so different than what you describe. Now it is so different. How will it all unfold during the next 50 years?
