It truly never occurred to me the kind of hate that is out there in this world. I guess I was shielded from it thru life. Sure, I seen bad stuff, I read the news, I watched tv. This is a different kind of hate I’m talking about.
Social media has brought forth some of the worst type of hate I have ever seen. Recently circulating Facebook was a letter that a crazed individual wrote to a mother of a 13 year old autistic boy. To say to a parent that the child should be euthanized or his “non retarded” body parts should be donated to science….that’s beyond cruel. I have no idea who the mother is that received that letter, but I can only imagine the anger, pain, and hatred that ran thru her as she read it. My heart broke for her and her child. My heart also breaks for the children being raised by this evil women who wrote that letter. I can’t imagine the things they are being taught and how they will grow up to teach other kids.
Then there is baby Corbin’s page. I have followed from the beginning. Admiring the strength of his parents. The day baby Corbin gained his angel wings, my heart broke into a million pieces. Then along comes a troll and says mean and hateful things on their page! Why? Why, at the time they are hurting most, would anyone say hurtful words? I can’t comprehend it.
The bullying done on social media between kids, pushing some to their breaking point and they take their own life. It’s heart wrenching. Why do people feel the need to be so cold, heartless, and mean? What I’d really like to know, is why is there no law protecting people? I know social media is fairly new, but it has happened far often enough something should be put into place.
Social media was supposed to be a good thing, but more and more its becoming evil. While I still use and love social media, I wish rude, mean, and heartless people would stay away from it. It takes the joy of it for me right out.
Have you had any bad experiences using social media?
