In a world full of social media, and behind the screen access to watch, monitor, like and/or comment; people have the ability to express themselves with no filter.
Do not get me wrong, I am for the 1st Amendment and very much support everyone's right to freedom of speech, however, social media seems to be taking away people's ability to evaluate there words and actions; taking away the thought process and making it the reactionary process.
Back in the day, when something bothered you, you were not able to post it, comment, and let the world know what you were thinking at the very moment you felt it. Now, we have the capability to instantaneously react to anything and everything; this can be good and bad.
The instant access to media allows us to express, comment, and respond immediately, but it has taken away people's thoughtfulness, reasonablness, and processing of acts and information.
For example, with a simple click of a button, you can indicate that you like or dislike something. It seems simple, just a reaction or a thought, but because of social media and the feeling of separation and feeling as though we are behind this invisible social media wall, we forget that there is a person on the other side of that click, that there are feelings that react, respond, and feel emotion to that click.
Hate = Enter
Hate has become as simple as pressing the enter button.
We are losing our humanity. I am saddened to see it, watch it, witness it, and hear it all too often, every single day.
I hope people start to think about what they say, how they comment, how they react, how they treat others, and take a moment to truly think and see what is happening. We are all a cause and a part of this world that has been created. We are all to blame.
Therfore, WE, are what needs to bring back the love and erase the hate.
We live in a world where information, thoughts, opinions, and ideas are passed along via tweets, likes, comments, facebook, instagram, youtube, snapchat, etc. by a blink of an eye. I think that if people were to just take a minute to evaluate, process, and think before they react, we may stop some of the hate that is out there.
Humanity is starting to only see division based on color, race, sexuality, and religion. Humanity is the human race, that means all humans; everyone of all creeds, races, nationalities, religion, sexual orientation, and cultures. We are one, but the world I see today identifying people as, them, us, and they.
I hope that humanity can find salvation because the way that people are treating one another, shows a lack of value for life, love, and caring for one another.
My personal opinion is that Social Media has ruined much of what was good about society. Yes, it is a great way to share information and ideas quickly, but in turn, it is an easy and fast way in order to spread any message; hate being at the top of that list.
I remember the days when people would sit around and talk, play board games, and have conversations with the people in the room; or even go outside and play! Now, we all have are faces in our phones, which is great because we can stay in contact with more people, but the disemmination of information has become so fast that people go through a spectrum of emotion within seconds in stead of minutes and hours.
There is always good and bad to everything.Just like all good things, it is always best in moderation.
Remember: Next time before you click that enter button, to think about what you are saying, how it will effect others and how it will make you look. Love is hard to come by, but hate is easy. That is why loving takes more time, thought, and consideration.
