The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Actually I don't think there is any good in this post. I am going to address the ugly out there on the internet, specifically Facebook. I am astounded that people are joining a group that calls/supports/prays for someone's death. I am even more astounded that friends of mine have joined such groups. And I am not talking teens, like my son who joins just about every group that he comes across. I would hope that I've raised him better than to join a group wanting someone to die. I am talking about adults. People that I consider good, well meaning individuals. Now I am not so sure. I don't believe any of these people would think that bullying is OK, but isn't this a form of bullying? Maybe, maybe not!? I am not even going to get into whose death they are wishing for. I am just shocked that anyone's death would be wished for...whether they be a politician, family member, neighbor, or stranger. I feel as if Facebook has made me a very liberal person. More likely it's raised my awareness of how liberal I've always been. I just can't understand the hate that exists out there!!
