And I'm glad there are people who are working to clean it up. I, myself, worked for two years as a counselor for severely emotionally disturbed young boys. Violent, neglected children. It drained me. I couldn't keep it up. But I'm SO grateful to the people who do: The teachers, the social workers, the people who spend their Saturdays feeding the poor.
I started to feel guilty that I wasn't doing more of that. Then I realized that there are two ways you can battle the shit in the world. You can fight the negativity. Or you can promote the positivity. BOTH are required.
Consider me a positivity warrior to the core.
