At approaching 40 years of age...

Ive already seen alot of sad, heartbreaking stuff.
COVID 19, Grenfall Tower, Manchester Arena and IRA bombings George Floyd, Washington 2021,9/11, 7/7, London 2011, Lee Rigby, Sarah Evarard.. I could go on.

So many sad memories and tragedies forever etched in my mind.

What frightens me is the next 40 years of Tragic events I may witness.

One thing is for certain though, I akways allow these things to make me reflect on how I and we as a human collective, can be better.

Ill never ever forget the first 40 years of my life.

40 was okay to me, but 50 kicked my ass. Enjoy your decade!

[@1125727,FlowersNButterflies] Most of us just get bald and fat, but I understand your point. I am seeing a shift more like the French, too, for what its worth.
[@1125727,FlowersNButterflies] Nancy Pelosi is still more attractive at 81 than Trump was at 74.

Eh, I would say we're among some of the luckiest generations in human history. The best was probably in the 80s if you were in a developed country, but historically illness and starvation and death during childbirth were the norm

[@1090951,PepsiColaP] Who me? Nah, i just write my feelings and thoughts like a public diary thats all.
That's life, buddy. No different two thousand years ago. Will be the same two thousand years from now.

You are a sensitive. These things cause me actual pain, too. Very difficult.

Why so focused on sad or even horrible events? I'm certain there have been more than enough pleasant events as well in your life so far.
Our future is not just something to be afraid of, it is also something to be looking forward to.
Helen the optimist 😌

[@6602,helenS] yes indeed! aww you gave me a rose 😁😊 makes me feel sweet in a nice way 😊

[@6602,helenS] Talking about it doesn't make it a focus, just a topic. So important to share on everything we can.
