While this European refugee crisis is sad and disturbing, it's also infuriating. I can't imagine why people bring children into the world when they are not sure they can make them safe, healthy, and happy. It is shocking to see the vast numbers of these sad children being dragged from place to place, homeless, hopeless and hungry. Don't people have any idea of what their future prospects are before they carelessly introduce a new life into this troubled planet? Perhaps many of these refugees didn't anticipate these disastrous time, but I'm sure others gave no thought to what a child would have to suffer once given life. With so much criticism of birth control today, it is one of our most important future safeguards if we want to avoid so much hunger, displacement and misery throughout the world.
I am a retired copywriter. For 40 years I wrote for major agencies and developed some campaigns you would know. Like most writers, I love to give my opinion, and since I am so familiar with advertising this is the area I chose to comment on.
Actually I'm not that cranky. I am as fond
of as many things as I detest. But since most people only hear what one doesn't like, I might as well go with cranky.For my other blog idleideasfactory I am putting out there things I have written and ideas for books, screenplays, stage plays, and even products that I will not have time in life to follow through on. If
anyone can profit from them, be my guest.
