A Sad Day Indeed

Today is a sad day for humanity. On one hand a civilian aircraft has been intentionally shot down and on the other, people are being exterminated like vermin in the middle East. Obviously I have never posted anything of the political nature just because I feel that I am not qualified to give my opinions on these issues. However, I do wish other people share the same sentiments.
There are just too many ignorant people plastering their thoughts all over the internet. Heck, even our phones are not safe from the onslaught of these “news items”. Most of all though I wish that people would stop sharing images of those who have perished. It’s not only disrespectful but it also dehumanises the issues at hand. Surely these people deserve more respect than a number of shares. What’s worse is you get some weirdos commenting on those pictures. Have you ever read those comments? Please go and take a look. The comments will most definitely make your blood boil.
So in spirit of being a conscientious human being; please stop sharing sensitive materials and more importantly please keep your backward and uninformed opinions to yourself.
As for myself, I have a weekend of spring cleaning my Facebook account. I don’t need Facebook-induced high blood pressure.
Sekian, terima kasih.
