The things that are going on in this world, that make me weak in the knees and fill my heart with sorrow are:
So many people at war, children starving, women being brutalized, women and children being sold into slavery, soldiers and civilians being blown up, cities and towns being devastated, the ravages of man’s inhumanity to man, with no thought for neighbors, neighboring towns, and animals, greed, fear of death, religion, pornography, the rich getting richer while the poor are getting poorer, the insane political arena, hatred and violence, insensitivity, the biased news media, racism and bigotry, homophobia, desensitization, and women’s struggle for equality in a patriarchal world.
This list is by no means conclusive, it simply represents that which is in my mind at the moment. How about you? What makes you weak in the knees and filles you heart with sorrow?
