FIRST TOPIC: Are we as a world becoming less human? How deep does it go?
As many of you know, Margaret Thatcher passed away this week. Regardless of political persuasion, this woman has helped to shape the world as we know it, and has contributed to her country in many many ways. So it disturbed me when my mother mentioned to me that there are some people celebrating her death. I don’t recall her ever being responsible for some mass genocide or some deadly plague. Was she not a human being? Did she not have friends, family who are devastated by her passing? The line of basic human descency seems to entail that you don’t celebrate someone else’s sorrow.
Whether someone is Republican, or Democrat, whether I voted for them or not, I don’t plan on ever rejoicing at the passing of someone who once led America. I did not know them personally. I do not know their personal hardships or pain. And I plan on giving them the respect they deserve, regardless of political affiliation.
Maybe I just don’t get it. What do you think?
