There is a phenomenon I don't understand.
It frightens me.
People put pictures of people on Facebook.
Then other people line up and say cruel things about them.
One was a picture of a large woman wearing tight bright clothing.
The captions said 'describe her in just one word'
And the words fell like acid rain ...
One was a picture of a young man with tattoos and piercings on his face.
Again we were asked to describe.
And the words like stones flew through the air.
Why do people put pictures of people up just to be mocked?
What kind of society are we?
I noticed yesterday something odd.
One of the people who put up a picture of a person to be pilloried.
Ranted and raved about the bombing at Boston.
Violence is violence is violence.
Terrorism is terrorism is terrorism.
Purposeful hurt is purposeful hurt.
There will be those who say there is no comparing the two.
I say, until we compare the two and worry about both, neither will stop.
