Shadows of shame

Our world is more unsettled. Certainly with current extensive media coverage we can view the pain of nations in intimate detail from our homes; the horrors of the protests in Ukraine where snipers are killing citizens, the horsewhipping of Pussy Riot by Cossacks, riots in Caracas,Venezuela, the North Korean genocide and the ongoing devastation of Syria. Corrupt government officials seem to be at the root of all these crises with citizens & activists taking the punishment. Worrisome class divisions, poverty and corruption seem to effect every country and culture in the world. How will these disparities resolve? What can be done to correct the injustices? Will good prevail and what is that good? Where is the conscience of the world? People are dying...
