Weekly Poll

Do you believe all the negative and disturbing events that we see or hear about seems to be steadily increasing?

Yes. It seems like every time you turn on the tv or go online, you are bombarded with violence, hate and intolerance towards others.

Yes. I believe this is the beginning of the end and the Lord will be returning soon.

No. I believe the violence has always been present. Our access to more and instantaneous news and events not only in our country but around the world gives us the perception that violence and hate is on the rise.

I chose to dwell on positive events and thoughts, therefore I do not to subject myself to anything negative if I can help it.

It is what it is. I can't do anything to change it.
