What's wrong with our world?

Why are people abused
Why are people shot
Why do people commit suicide
Why are people anorexic and bulimic
Why do people care more about money than family
Why do people call themselves fat or ugly
Why are kids kidnapped and killed
Why do people die
Why do people tell you they love you and take it back
Why do people hurt each other
Why are people raped
Why do people cut themselves
Why do people hate their lives
Why do teenagers get pregnant
Why do people call each other names
Why are people raciest
Why are people depressed
Why are people put in mental hospitals
Why do peole do drugs
Why do people cuss
Why do people not care what happens to them
Why do people care what others think of them
What's wrong with our world

    Why are people raped? Why do people abort(kill) sweet, inocent children? It is because we do not follow God. We do not trust Him. If our world would turn to Him, everything would be different. (Report) Reply

    It's not the world, we live in, it's the people, that live in it!
    Unfortunately, everyone, isn't sound, nor are they even fit!
    There's too much pressure, in everyday life, that causes
    many, to have a lot of strife! Maybe, some day soon, will
    begin, to see the light. But until then, there's more things
    wrong, than there is, right! (Report) Reply
