What are we leaving our children? In light of the terror attacks, I ask this. We are leaving them isis, a sickening, violent, almost non human group. We are leaving them a horribly unequal world, as far as wealth, as far as education, as far as the comforts of living a long and productive life, and it is this inequality that spawns terror.
As far as climate, the health of this planet, our home, what are we leaving them? We are leaving them a catastrophe. The 10-20 inch rise in sea levels that was to have taken many decades in which to occur, now climatologists think will happen within a decade. And it will have real and dire consequences. This is what we are leaving for our children to deal with and it is not something that can easily be handled, or perhaps handled at all.
Terror and climate catastrophe. This is what we are leaving for our children. Sad, incredibly sad.
How, with the way things are and the way people behave, how can we make things any better?
Cruz is calling for monitoring of Muslim neighborhoods to make sure that Muslims don’t get radicalized! Trump wants to register Muslims so he can keep tabs on them! Does this not remind you of another awful period in history, targeting and marking a whole group of people. Remember, it did not end well.
As my brother, who is an Art director of an Institute in Brussels said “Scary times!” Scary because of so many things.
Unfortunately, fear seems to be winning.
