Has life on planet earth become so distorted, twisted and chaotic that even the imaginary aliens are ready
to leave the earth? The generation of people on the planet that are 50 years old or older can remember how life was
40 years ago. Some, maybe many of the older citizens of the world will tell you that there has been great change. However,
human beings still make life almost impossible for one another. Their hatred, greed, and envy for one another have only
become stronger. Yes, humans show great compassion and respect for each other...sometimes...Christmas and Easter.
But...life all over the globe is based on every man and every woman for himself or herself. People still fight and kill
one another because someone cut in front of them in a line at a movie theater. Or, a brother ate the last slice of cheese
that another brother wanted. If I was an alien, I might think about leaving this world too. Yes, we could talk
for hours, days, months, and years, about our progress and the positive side of our human development. But, face it,
tomorrow when I drive to work, if I inadvertently cut in front of another driver, he or she is going to honk their horn at
me as I look through my rear view mirror watching them give me a vulgar hand jesture with their finger and screaming at me
like I just took their last piece of cheese.
