Well, things are tough all over, aren't they?
Seriously, this is just the tip of the iceberg. This morning when I woke
up to the
clock radio they were discussing how many children in rich and poor
are being subjected to child labor. They were also urging Christmas
to look for "Made in the USA" tags, to try to get people to stop buying
from other countries that are using child labor.
Men, women, children, animals, the environment. You name it, it's being
because people are walking around in their own disturbed little worlds and
can't get out
of the revolving doors of their own psychological problems. Power, greed,
selfishness, fear, hate, etc. is robbing all of us of the loving support we
need to make a go of it on the physical plane.
No one is in this alone - it just may feel like it at times.
