OPINION

Everyone has an opinion about something. From our President of the United States, to our religions, and different events on the news.

This week there was an incident where a teen mother threw her baby off a bridge and then jumped herself in a murder/suicide attempt. EVERYONE had an opinion. ' she should be hung' they said,.....
she should go to jail for life...' they said....I watched as everyone condemned her for getting pregnant in the first place, why didn't she get an abortion? why didn't she...blah blah blah..................

The world has such hate.....the human race is the first one to point a finger, to blame and ridicule. Really, does everyone think this young woman hopped and skipped to the bridge to kill herself and her child? What kind of mental anguish was she in? of course she was not right...but what kind of society are we if we have no compassion? Why didn't she feel there was no where to turn?  Why is everyone assuming that she WANTED to be pregnant? was this a product of rape, incest, birth control failure.....why is everyone the judge but no one is the problem solver? Shame on us as a human race................

Facebook, instagram and other social media has made it easy for us to body shame, blame, force our opinions and talk some BIG TALK with anonymity being a shield to hide behind. Everyone's opinion on Baltimore and Freddy Gray has made me wonder what kind of people are we? or....maybe we are just animals...we would kill each other, just to make a point.

I am only 1 person of insignificance. I make hats, costumes, and things to make people feel good about themselves. In the grand scheme of things, I realize that there is nothing I can do as a woman, a person to make people realize how hateful a society we have become. All I can do is keep trying, keep thinking, maybe if I have tolerance and compassion....eventually it will catch on. Or maybe we will kill each other off by then........................
