Empathy Where Art Thou?

I am feeling particularly hopeless this morning, the world’s preoccupation with being sarcastic or rude without a reason makes me unhappy. You don’t have to walk in someone’s shoes to be nice, have folks forgotten life 101 – when you do not have anything nice to say to someone, don’t say anything at all! 

I wonder am I feeling this hopeless only because I am sitting behind a computer and most of my interactions are with folks online and given that the internet gives you the power of anonymity maybe people find it powerful to be rude and arrogant or rather have no kindness for folks that lead a different lifestyle or make different choices.
