Our Moral Decay of Society (Part 1) by Roxie


The other day I was backing my car out of a parking spot in a very large parking lot, a mother with her child decided to walk right behind my moving vehicle making me stop short. I did not see them until they were right behind my moving vehicle, the reason why I did not see them, was because the child was walking ahead of her and was the same size of my car. As they continued to walk, I heard the mother say to her child,” that car should have stopped to let us pass.” In a store, a child was having a temper tantrum and a mother gave whatever that child wanted. Just two incidents I experienced this week.
In a conversation with my cousin, who believes all that happens is the parents fault, which she holds all parents of the world responsible for all children’s behavior, was totally into the conversation and my experiences fueled her belief.
Of course, we started to discuss the Connecticut shooting. She expressed how she wanted the mother of this killer to spend life in prison as an accomplice to murder. How the mother had to know something that her child was a mass murderer, at that I point I said to her,” I think you would have to believe that the mother did try to get her child help, It is very clear throughout the reading and gathering information on this story, that she was definitely afraid of her son. You do not become afraid of your kid, it is a process or evolution and escalation of bad behavior to make her or anyone scared of a loved one.” She did not appreciate the comment, and continued to tell me how that mother was guilty because she ignored the signs.
Here is where this discussion begins, it is so easy to point fingers at parents and while it is true there are some parents that are not the model parents, I will say, most of those kids are not out killing others. With that in mind, what is fueling such moral decay in the fabric of our society? There was a time a hijacked airplane would go to Cuba. If you are in a hijacked plane now, you are as good as dead. There was a time a robbery was just that, a robbery, now there are victims left behind. There was time an arsonist would set fires anywhere they could get away with it, now they have to set occupied houses on fire, forests on fire and factories and so forth and so on. There was a time a killer would be just below the human radar, all serial killers would work in a silent matter until their victims were discovered or they became discovered. Now we have mass murders. There has been a steady escalation of moral decay, and I fear the worst is yet to happen.

Please follow this 4 Part series discussion. Part 2 coming shortly. Please comment.

As this New Year starts with happiness for most, it also ends with extreme sadness for some who have had loved ones go home to GOD this year. I for one am extremely grateful for My GOD, My Mother and for the life I live, which is still evolving for the better. While it is true, the tragedy in Connecticut brought us closer together, at least, for a little while. It is also true, that most will not even think of such a tragedy 6 months now or even care. As I awoke this morning at 4AM, I started thinking of the word neighbor and tried to define that word. When GOD said,” love thy neighbor” did he mean the person next door, the people down the block, others that live in our communities? What is a neighbor? Moreover, why do most of us share such a small idea on such a big word? Maybe it is because we do not think of the word neighbor as being a big word at all. I have seen the behavior of the human race repeatedly, we all care, we are all concerned, want to give and we do give. Then just as we are concerned enough to show compassion, shed tears, share each other’s pain, and give, we just stop the concern and giving, for no apparent reason. So, I ask this question of you, what is a neighbor? Sandy came and destroyed 100,000’s lives and millions more because we are all connected. We all have families, loved ones, friends, acquaintances, co-workers and alike, I could keep going. Yet before Sandy, we never gave a thought to those living a mile or so from us. However, after Sandy, they became our neighbors and we thought of them as such, but they were always our neighbors, right? We should take care of each other and help each other, yet, it seems the same definition of neighbor also applies to taking care of each other. I say to you, should a loved hold hands of someone they know, who you do not know, and that someone holds hands of someone else they know, who you do not know and they continue to hold hands of others for 10 miles, would the person holding the last hand be considered your neighbor? Let us say, your next-door neighbor has their family visit from Asia for the holidays and they go back home, are those that left considered your neighbor? What if all life was destroyed on the earth and you was the only person to survive, would you consider yourself alone? What if you found out there was another person half way around the world, now it is just the two of you with millions of miles between you. In that circumstance, would you consider that person half way around the world your neighbor? I say this, if we are human, bleed, breath and have a heart that allows us to feel and brain that allows us to think, we are neighbors. If we continue with the thought pattern we are to love our neighbor next door and take of only the people we care for, then I say, this is the reason we have the troubles we have. The chain gets broken because someone does not follow through, I say, just taking care of each other and loving our neighbor is bigger than we can imagine. What a Happy New Year if all of us reading this would know that Love Thy Neighbor is not an individual action, but the actions of many. This is my resolution, to love my neighbor, wait it is my way of life not a resolution.
Happy New year Love Happy Me
