Pictures can sometimes say the words we cannot find to say. These are some perfect examples of that, and they say it in a way that I never could!
I am not going to put these images in any specific order they are all equally troubling in my eyes. It is scary how terrible we have let this world get, and how little we are doing to save it. Please take the time to look over the images below, they reveal just how low society has fallen.

This is the world we live in. I am completely disgusted by the things that I have seen in these images. Why aren’t we doing anything to correct these mistakes? Why have we let society fall this far? However, the better question is… what can we do about it?
