I'd love to take this moment, to bring up the great irony of this political post/statement.

I'd say at least 75% of the people here are guilty of the above. You don't really care, right now people are being murdered, raped, taken, beaten, and oppressed. A species died out, a mother lost her children, a lost child died in the wilderness... suffering. Endless suffering. But do you really give a damn?

No you probably don't.

Most people think only about themselves, unconcerned about anything else. As someone hypersensitive and hyper-aware I can't help but get angry over a political post like this... because it's complete ********.

No one gives a real ****, and those that pretend that they do are just giving themselves a pat on the back. "I'm a good person because I feel bad." Yeah right.

I get the point that this thing is trying to make.. but I can't help but feel that there is an extreme amount of hypocrisy going on here. It's always some middle eastern country... it's as if Russia and other places with extreme wrong don't exist. This is all so selective because it deals with American political affairs. That kind of rubs me the wrong way.

End rant here, take my comment however you want.

However, I think the majority of us do care, but not enough to dwell on it and do something about it. A woman's child dies and we tell them "We're sorry for your loss," or "I could never understand how it feels," because we can't. And so we don't dwell on that which we cannot comprehend. Until we finally experience a hint of it, until we understand. And then we care.

It's usually not a lack of compassion, but a lack of understanding and fully grasping the tragedy.

I don't care about anyone but the people I come into contact with. I give a **** about Brad Pitt's new movie or that Kardashian got a zit on her ass...
The people I meet or even come in contact with are very important though.

I do think that others' lives are worth more than my own though, there have been a few times that I have helped people at a personal cost.
The people that believe in honor are a dwindling minority.
