• That’s what’s wrong with the human race

    Sometimes I just wonder. Why is it that humans get to rule this world? Do our opposable thumbs make use better than all other animals? And if they do, why does every human thing they’re better than the rest?

    I just wonder. Does anyone actually read these? Am I the only one that sits down and reads other peoples’ letters? There are never many comments, three at most. Some letters are so heart wrenching, I don’t know how people don’t comment. Do people even read others’ letters?

    Do people only come on to write their own letter? Are people so self-centered they only put their own letter on hoping someone will read it, and not caring about every other person who wrote a letter that day? Is it an unspoken contest?
    Why can’t people take the time-out to read a letter and leave a comment from the heart. Thats what’s wrong with the human race. We don’t care about each other. We only ever think of ourselves.

    Maybe we should let the other animals rule the world. Maybe they’ll do it with more compassion for all the other creatures, including their own species.

      I feel you. I wonder the same exact thing. I feel more than likely this is just an outlet for people to vent to instead of actually confiding in another person. Which, i don’t blame that choice either. People can be cut throat and cold. But im glad you wrote this and i’m leaving a comment to let you know at least one person read this.

      I can think of numerous things that are wrong with the human race, but in the end we’re not as lost as it often seems.

      Good people do exist. Selfless. Humble. Charitable. Pure.

      Perfect? No, but they are trying. Not for perfection to claim a title above others, but to be sincere and genuine to make for a better world. Unfortunately the rest of the world drowns out their voice, making them all the more difficult to locate.

      As for this site, it makes it difficult when only five letters are featured on the front page and all others get pushed back to numerous pages, especially when several are published at once. Not every body has time to sift through page after page to read every letter, and so I think many go unread by the majority of the visitors of this site, unfortunately.

      I personally read every letter. A selfish part of me hopes to find myself at the center of one by a person I may know, but I empathize with each one I do read. I don’t always comment because often times the right words fail to surface, but I am always here, always reading, and always praying over the broken souls seeking refuge and rejoicing with those who have found it.

      I’m not the author, but I couldn’t help but agree with your comment. You are so wise that sometimes it’s hard to believe that you are the age you say that you are. You seem so much older…

      I do read them as well, I visit the site a few times a day. Oftentimes words escape me when a letter is so incredibly heart breaking; what can a broken person tell another broken person to make him/her feel better? And whether we like it or not there are situations that we have to overcome ourselves on our own; there is simply nothing other people can do to help us but to place us in God’s hands and ask Him to intervene.
