Default News is too depressing!!

I wish the world were a more peaceful, happy place. A few bad apples ruin it for the rest of us. Most of us have depression because of external reasons and not just chemical imbalances or birth disorders. If the world was a better place, most of us feel better in general.
The recent earthquakes, that awful tsunami back in '04..things like that make me sad for the victims. I cried for days after that tsunami, that really bothered me even tho it was on the other side of the world and I knew no one who lost their life.
And, there's political unrest here in my own country. Just great, why can't we all just get along??? I think people can coexist peacefully, but most just don't want to. Or maybe I'm just being naive here, lol.

I watch the news everyday. I agree. The world is in such a mess. It has been worse through out History but I doubt we will ever see a Utopia on earth.It adds to my depression as well. And its not just the news. Its the way people treat each other in groups and such. You think we be better as humans as life is not nearly as hard at it once was.In most countries anyways. But the easier it gets the worse people become.

I live in the States. Great place, but people here are mean to each other. BUT when tragedy strikes we pull together. Sad it takes something bad to bring out the good in people. We just had a tornado a week ago, it was amazing how people helped each other and some came from other neighborhoods to help clear out trees and debris.
But nornal, everyday life...people can be so rude. It's really ashame.

I hear ya. The news is always depressing. There's never any good news! There's always some sort of tragedy or drama. Basically, the news is for people who are just too damn happy, and need something to ruin their day from time to time. =\

Bad news are interesting, good ones are not. People want to see blood and misery out of morbid curiosity.
