Remember the classic funny scene on the episodes of Dexter’s Lab where Dee Dee bounces into the lab and exclaims “OOOH! what does this button do?” and presses the shiny red button causing things to go kaboom??
The self destruct button.
Just yesterday I was reading this article about more teenagers getting into the habit of using drugs; due to peer pressure and competitive lifestyle.
Everytime I turn on the news channel, and the first thing to hit you is huge banners saying BREAKING NEWS!! Even the simplest things hyped up by the media; especially the horrific ones.
The reactions to the now very common blasts everywhere has turned from “Oh no! really??” to “Oh ok, big deal! It happens all the time.”
Oil spills, pollution, global warming, rising prices, depression, inflation, protests, hostages, trapped miners, shoot outs, violence and so on till one is tempted to stop watching the news for good. So many wonder, what the hell is the world coming to? In short; someone seems to have pressed the self destruct button.
And if people don’t start to enjoy the few good things left, they too may soon become extinct.
I don’t know about you, but I think that if more people imagined that they were pressing the self destruct button in their head before they pour themselves ‘just one more drink’ or ‘just one more time’; or before they start a fight , throw something or anything of that sort; the world will be a better place for everyone.
Until next time, Love, Me 🙂
