If everyone cared..

This Scarlett Keeling case just seems to be getting worse by the minute. Its quite evident that nobody stands to win here. The parent has shown obvious negligence in leaving her 15-year-old child behind without any consideration for her safety.

The Goan administration and Police also have shown utter lack of fulfilment of duty by neglecting to conduct a thorough examination, and for that matter, by even letting the incident occur.

The British Government doesn't want this case to be a reflection of their citizens so they seem to be trying their level best to disown the parent without seeming to be disrespectful or such..

NObody wins. Except maybe Scarlett, atleast she no longer lives in a world such as ours where we don't care to protect, we just point fingers. Or so it seems..

If only the Utopia mentioned in the song of Nickelback who, though it might seem are being influenced by pop elements to an inexcusable extent, have hit the nail bang on the head with no doubts whatsoever..

"If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

At times like there, the words ring so true and touch a nerve that needs to be alive and beating in all of us for this world to make sense again... Else, we are headed for an international genocide of proportions insane..

The hypocrisy of the west and the east respectively and when taken together is such a sad sight to see.. America trying to play mediator in the Israel-Palestinian war while they themselves cannot seem to let go of the bitterness that they show to the Islamic world. The double standards on the Iranian Nuclear situation and that shown by RUssia.

All these nations claim to be democracies, they claim to hold fair and free elections but in the end they go to extents just short of physically stuffing ballots to gain personal profit. Why? Why can't we just love and live in peace?

*Sigh* We need a cure for poverty. Socialism didn't quite work, a new world order is in the offing.
