Simple question/thought tonight, but I really do want your input. Are people today more sick than in years past or is the media more widespread so we hear about them more? My personal view is that it is a combination of both. The media jumps all over stories out of the ordinary. All you hear about is the sick and twisted no matter what good news is taking place. People tuned in by the hundreds of millions to see the miners rescue. I hope the media was looking at how people want to see the good things that are going on all over the world. Instead we become suspicious, cautious and paranoid about the people around us because who knows when we will cross paths with the next weirdo.
I will admit that I have come across some strange ones in my short life. I have said that I am a magnet. I am very cautious when I am out, especially with my family. Has the media made me paranoid or the people I come in contact with? I don’t walk around in a state of paranoia but am aware. How about you? Are you more cautious or more aware?
