I touched on this yesterday with the news and exponential outburst of “RIP Nelson Mandela” with some quote or reason why a person (who had never listed Mandela as a hero or inspiration before his death) is labelling him as a “true inspiration.”
But this is exactly what is wrong with Society. We’re too wrapped up in technology and keeping up appearances/staying on trend to realise how inappropriate we are being. If somebody remotely famous dies, we’re all quick out of the blocks to “RIP” them. But this is almost exclusively in death. Very rarely in a person’s life do we only measure the good points about that person’s life.
Let’s try and get off the internet, maybe go out and get some fresh air, go for a walk, etc. Get off the computer.
