We are fast becoming a nation of sissies! It isn’t enough that bad things happen, we now have to celebrate, commemorate and venerate every last detail of any bad thing no matter how big or small that bad thing was â€” just so long as the media can film it!
Where is the courage and fortitude folk used to have in the face of heartbreak or misfortune? Where is the stiff upper lip shown by previous generations through comparable pains?
Strangers who feel compelled to lay flowers at the site of someone’s death â€” a someone they never knew â€” are filling a void in their lives that has nothing to do with the tragedy, the dead person or the media sensationalism.
We need to get a grip and get a hold of ourselves!
