Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “where.” Start your post with the word “where” and write whatever comes to you. Bonus points if you end your post with “where” too. Enjoy!
Where are we headed? That is a question most sane and sensible people are asking themselves and each other these days. All over the world, there are cropping up incidents of violence, intolerance and racism. When something goes wrong, people are quick to pass the blame onto others. Blaming video games and family structure for the gun violence is a classic example. There were days when people in charge had enough moral courage to accept the responsibility and the blame for any decisions that went south. But not anymore. Now everyone else is to be blamed but those who actually are! Isn’t it time that we call them to account for their decisions or lack of them? Isn’t it time that we as people owned up to our collective mistakes in electing these conscience-less people to power? Or are we waiting for this situation to get worse and we end up in situations which resemble our worst nightmares? There are a lot of questions we need to answer. But it needs to start somewhere!
