Many things happen all in one day. New people enter the world, new ideas are introduced. (For the most part) people get smarter, people become more open-minded, lives are saved, etc.
But then there's the bad. Things such as Syria, wars, children dying, world population, etc.
My day is usually a pretty good day right up to the point at night when I lay down in my bed and just think. Sometimes for hours on things like this.
Why is it that people just can't get along.
Why have all this good in the world if it means nothing in the face of wars, death, and the uncertainty of the stability of nations.
Then I tell myself: what is it all for?
Why worry, in the end of your life on this insignificant planet, your impact will be almost negligible. The only thing you'll leave is not footprint on history, but a carbon footprint.
- Posting something like this on adisc I don't really expect to receive much of response. People, understandably, don't seem to want to talk about this stuff. (Unless people do want to, but for the most part, in my life, none of my friends seem to want to.)
- I want to dive deeper into the "why" aspect of these topics. I want to understand something that I may never understand, but will try anyways.
