What’s in the news…

I finally finished my finals for this semester!! I heave a sigh of relieve… Relieve to have time to my own… Relieve to not have sleepless nights pouring over books… Relieve to not have to lookg at another book or endless notes (well…not until next semester anyways!) And relieve to finally get to meet all my friends and family whom i have neglected all these while… I am indeed…happy to have finished my exams. I was grinning from ear to ear the moment the last paper finished!! The first thing i did when i got home was to pick up a newspaper to read…

Then i felt sad…

Why you asked? I have all my holidays lined up…all my days booked solid…all those outings and fun that i’m supposed to have… Why do i feel sad? Just pick up a paper today…and read. You’ll know what i mean. Just read the first few pages if not the whole paper… Read the MAIN paper mind you!! 😛 Not the comic section and not the sports or business section. Just the main paper which consist of the national and world news…Just read and and tell me you don’t feel this… sad, rueful, sorrow…

The paper is full of…melancholic situations and depress cases.

Yesterday it was the shootout between 5 robbers and the policemen…All of the robbers died and few policemen wounded. All because of the greed of some people who do not know the meaning of honest work. Today was about a bus which overturned in Kuala Kangsar on the north-south highway…killing 4 people and wounding many others. All because the reckless driving of the bus driver. Last week was a guard in a kindergarten in China hacked the children and adults after the last bell. It should be because of insanity. Another one about a woman who got ran over by a car and died before she could reach the hospotal. Why? Because the guy who ran her over had a little accident with her and there was a disagreement of some sort.

And mind you… These are just the really bad cases… There are many more where that came from!

What is this world coming too? Where is the peace that everyone is talking about? Where is the harmonious relations? The freedom from disputes? Is there no more harmony in this world? I mean…every turn of the newspaper, you will see more distressing, unfortunate and pitiful situations that will make your heart bleed. It’s just so sad seeing innocent children being slaughtered or unsuspecting adults being caught in an accident or incident which causes their lives…

Sigh~~~because of all these…i really dread reading the newspaper… But then…my parents want me to read. Said that it will increase my knowledge, and keep me up to date so that i will not look ignorant while talking to other people especially adults. But then, if it is news like these…i’d seriously rather not know about it. It’s just too…depressing!! I rather run around the block shouting “i’m free i’m free!!” than read the papers…

I don’t know…maybe it’s because it’s so coincidental that everytime i pick up the papers there is something depressing. Hey…both you and i know that coincidences always happen to us right? Especially to me… Rememebr all the times and all the songs and events that somehow always relate to us? It is funny actually..but that’s beside the point~~ 😛 Or maybe it’s just that i’m just picking out all the sad and melancholic news because i feel the same way myself. That i refuse to see all the good news because i’m sure that the world is on it’s negative mood right now…just like me…

But then…is it just me? Or is the world really turning evil and vicious?

I don’t know…you tell me??
