It’s hard to read the news without thinking we have become a total train wreck. Terrorist attacks, mass killings, abductions, home invasions, twerking, politicians sexting and leaders behaving like thugs.
Who dares leave the news on when small children are in the room? Parents have become adept at the remote control dive.
The world can be downright depressing. But the truth is, the world has always been dark to some degree because the world has always been populated by people. On top of that, bad news has always gotten better coverage than good news. You can be sure that the town crier who ran through the streets of D.C. screaming that Lincoln had been shot never ran through the streets yelling, “Sunny with a high of 75 tomorrow!”
