Why I post disturbing stories and views

Some of you may be wondering why I post the stories about past and current events like I do and others have just hidden me from there news feed to avoid seeing them.  I have even lost a few FB friends because of it... and that's okay too.  Some real life friends and family may ask themselves why I am more vocal now than before losing Trey, possibly assuming that I have lost my mind as a result of it. I can assure you that my mind is still here even if it is a bit rusty.  It saddens me deeply to see so many struggling with personal issues at the same time ignoring the issues that affect us collectively.  I was guilty of doing the same thing before Trey died and it was only with his death, that I had the time to start searching for answers as to why we are here and what is our purpose in life.  I can't help but wonder if I had taken the time while he was here to really search and apply the knowledge gained before the accident... would the outcome be any different?  I may never know the answer to that and many other questions but all I can focus on right now... is NOW!

Many of you may seem to understand that the world is beyond messed up but don't know exactly why it is this way because it is too daunting or disturbing to really look behind the scenes for fear of what we might uncover.  I wasn't afraid of what I would find because I would rather have the unvarnished truth as apposed to some candy coated lie any day of the week.  My problem was the resources available at that time were mostly the candy coated lies that is most popular even today.  The few people brave enough to tell the truth and stand up against the evil of this world are often ridiculed and suffer a relentless assault from the ones that want the truth buried so deep that it never sees the light of day.  That makes finding the real truth more difficult than searching for that needle in the haystack.  Since I have experienced that on a very tiny level, I can only imagine what that would be like for the ones who have the heart to take on the really big problems in our world.  My limited experiences has taught me that ignoring them does not make them go away and if fact leaves the problem or the evil to grow stronger because it is not dealt with.  And if you really think back over your time on this planet can you say that the evil has just magically diminished or can you see that it has grown exponentially because it has been running unchecked for many centuries?  

I post these articles and graphics because I care and because I don't want to live with the lies anymore.  Even the ones I tell myself, like I can't do anything about it or it's not important.  It is important to each and every one of us whether we acknowledge it or not.  The death of one child no matter the circumstance is important and make no mistake many children are dying all over the world because of the greed, apathy and ignorance that is so pervasive in our society we have all created.  I am just as guilty of it and now I am trying to correct what is wrong with me, no matter how difficult the process or how long it takes.  I may fail, be wrong or ignored but I will also keep trying.
