What We Have Become
Denny's Pancake Brawl - story at The Republican via Masslive.com
Last night, I expressed to the wife that I don't feel anything anymore. I have been watching the footage of the aftermath of the earthquake in New Zealand. I've watched the video of people being shot down in the streets of Tripoli. I used to have empathy for victims of any type of tragedy, or injustice.
I don't anymore. I don't feel anything. No anger. No sadness. Not even a "well, you asked for it". Nothing. I feel more for roadkill than I do my fellow human beings right now.
This fight was over the fact that someone didn't have maple syrup at their table. What are you willing to fight over? What are you potentially willing to lose your life over?
A word to the guy in the booth being pummeled, there are knives and forks on the table.... use them.
