So many backseat quarterbacks have come out and given their opinion this past week, from baby boomers to the current generation- Gen Z. Amazing… These opinions are all over the board depending on how old you are, your race, religion, it’s a true melting pot of views. Which one is right? Is there a right answer?
Psychotherapist: ‘In a numb state’

Ask.fm is a user-fueled, question-and-answer social media site, which claims to have 70 million users worldwide. Users can skip around the site asking people whatever they want, with the end result being profile pages that read like questionnaires.
It has recently drawn heavy criticism as a hive of cyber bullying however, following several instances of teenage ask.fm members committing suicide after being harassed on the site. The suicide earlier this month of a 14-year-old British girl prompted UK Prime Minister David Cameron to call for a boycott of ask.fm.

Who, or What’s to blame for all this craziness? The Media, Hollywood, The Over Population of our Society, The Economy, Corporate America, The Good ole Government of the US Of A, Terrorism, Religion, or can it so simple as just one thing. Could it be YOU.
Like I said, it’s a hard, very hard question to answer I’m telling you that.
It ’s a true melting pot of views. Which one is right? Is there a right answer? Be bold and tell me what you think, I’m sure I’ve sparked a ton of feeling and emotions. Bring it on.
