How is everyone? I’m feeling lonely lately in the comments section. You see, one of my intentions when making this blog was to be able to kick-start some seriously thought-provoking conversations. And up to this point, it’s been slow going. Where is everyone? I’m getting 40 views daily!
Alright then, what have I got today? I have two things actually, something that’s new to this blog actually.
As I promised sometime last week, I have a story that was sent to me by a reader, and I’d like to share it today. Something that I’m always interested in is seeing new perspectives on an idea or a current event. But something that impressed me about this story is that it’s a new perspective on a very accepted and classic book – Alice In Wonderland. This author has written about the perspective of the Mad Hatter… I’ll let you read the rest. Click here if you’re interested. And if you want more from the author, click here. You can give a review too, which is a great way to make an impact. I really recommend the read though, because it is well written and very enthralling.
Anyway, the other thing I want to write about is actually something that I’m going to do some serious research on. I want to dissect what’s going on in Syria and understand why such open displays of violence and cruelty are first of all, happening, and secondly, going on for so long without serious action. I mean (and again, I’ll be more informed to blog about this in several days) I hear on the news that people, particularly kids and women, are being shot and killed for no apparent reason, and for the longest time, the government over there has done absolutely nothing to correct that.
This brings to mind what I was saying about corruption a few weeks ago, and this is possibly the most blatant example of it today. Why this is happening, I am at a loss. But I do know that the world has much to learn before this kind of thing stops happening. And I also know that things like money are being valued higher than human lives.
So I ask you, readers, to say what you think on the matter in the comments. This really is a serious issue, and although it may not affect many of us directly as it’s thousands of miles away, does that mean we should value it as a lesser problem? How can an issue like this be civilly solved?
Sorry to end on a dark note, see you tomorrow,
