we are becoming desensitized to everything. it never shocked me to hear dwight explain why he left hollywood, when he realized no one there was affected by the world trade center attacks. and if the truth about the attacks this year were reported, would america care? or are we too desensitized.
it is critically important to remember that those were people who died in the middle east! people, just like you, just like me. just like your mother and your father, your sister and brother, your children. what makes chris stevens any less important than your mother? the marines who died? that is the problem with america--they don't see people anymore. i'll bet the families of those marines see people.
and they don't see right and wrong. as dwight said, they see it as all being relative! well, what's relative to the followers of islam is that we must all be killed, because we are infidels! as dwight said, you can't stop a war if the other side doesn't want to stop fighting!
it's the lack of caring about right and wrong that bothers me the most. in my teacher credentialing program my peers come from very diverse beliefs and values, some relatively sane, others absolutely nuts--like, murdock-level nuts. but the only people who bother me are those without values. they claim to have them--when they insist upon the extreme political correctness in their curriculum and treatment of students. wait, we can't tell a kid to stop talking in class? it violates his rights? it offends him? God-forbid he isn't white, or then it's racism and we'll all be fired before we even get our credentials! oh, he's the quarterback of the football team? now we hate athletics, apparently.
i was born in the wrong century, seriously. thank God for romney's fantastic win in the debate, and i pray fervently to God that he'll continue to in the coming debates.
