The greatest tragedy of the information age

You just sit there numb, aware of injustice, of persecution, of tyranny around the world but you can't actually do anything about it, yes you show your condemnation and Change your DPs but whats next? Social media has made us insensitive we struggle with this every moment.

Look at any social media timeline you see selective outrage selective apathy, and then it's gone trivializing real issues. Our minds cope with all of it by forgetting sooner than it should, even the attack in Peshawar could not remain in minds for long, and here we are again feeding and regurgitating but forgetting, the moment its out of sight.

This is the greatest tragedy of this age. We are all the culprits and the victims of this at the same time. We struggle with this everyday to feel powerless to stop any injustice near or far.

They talk about the rise and ascendancy of collective consciousness of the society but all I see is decay of morality and apathy. All I see is hatred spreading via the very things that were designed to stop it.

So yes I am guilty of turning myself away, to stop seeing the bloodshed to stop listening to the endless stories of how low humanity can get. I can't take it anymore. Oh those who are suffering at the hands of others all I can do is pray for you. May Allah end your suffering.

When I say that I see negativity lack of apathy I mean society as a whole where apathy is reduced to the time a tweet is visible on the screen. This is my worthless apology to those who suffer...
