In response to The Daily Post prompt Connect the dots
Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.
With the amount of distressing news that comes on once you turn on the Television, I limit my time spent on TV to the barest minimum each day and on some days, not at all!
Catching the headline news is done when my day is half gone, that way I keep sane and will not start my day with so much disheartening, depressive news.
I equally refuse to listen to news before going to bed. It is bad for one’s health!
However, with respect to this prompt, I turned on the TV and caught the tail end part of possible strategy for combating ISIS.
The question posed was that with all the human atrocities that they commit, how come they maintain a position of financial strength by selling oil illegally and purchasing ammunition from undisclosed sources?
What went through my mind as I listened was:
- Who are these Clandestine ISIS customers?
- Who are their shameless ammunition suppliers?
- How come the World powers that be, lack the intelligence to decipher who these entities are?
- Is it that the World powers know and yet they choose to play Possum or Ostrich?
I know that without being told that there are those who will forever capitalize on the sorry state of affairs that exists in the World to fatten their pockets through the loopholes of terrorism, but to what ends?
How much is it really worth trading on people’s lives ?
I think that these are some of the most miserable greedy humans on Earth! Those who trade on human lives to line their pockets!
All the wealth acquired can never buy a true moment of peace!
We can only occupy a room at a time , drive a car at a time, eat only so much and at the end of it all, we have a small 6-foot space in Mother Earth where we go from dust to dust and with NOTHING AT ALL! !
Sorry to sound so dour 😔!
That is what the news does to me at times.
Well, let me turn off the TV right now and look forward to brighter thing’s since I can’t solve all the World’s problems!
A good evening to you all😊
