    I'll just leave it at the Middle East. Nothing else to add, but it's a tickin' time bomb. Also, I'm worried about some personal issues here at home.

      Our greed and insatiable appetite for material possessions is what concerns me the most. Our demand for cheaper and cheaper products and our exploitation of the needy is just exacerbating poverty in developing countries. We need to learn how to settle for less and share the cake a bit more evenly.

        Terrorism and wars should be separate, IMO.

          What concerns me mostly is the petifiles and child brothel houses in places like cambodia or somthing.

          They have towns in other countries that make majority of there money selling little kids.

          I am not even going to get into because it gets me to upset. It is depressing to even think about. Man, have you even seen those specials where they will put some of these people from america on camera!!!! One was a freakin docter!!

            The moral decline of society.

            Now that we have a generation that has been raised on situational ethics, there is no absolute right or wrong.

            This lack of a moral compass is creating a mess with many issues (abortion, assisted suicide, sexual relationships, etc....).

            It's been said that if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

            Politicians call that being moderate. I call it moral decline.

                  I have been ignoring the news lately - it's all bad.

                  I'm focusing on Cleveland Browns football.

                  So - my concern ATM is the Browns.

                  Then also, the semester at the University starts Monday. So - gotta be prepared for that as well.
                  The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

                  The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?

                    Yes but your own generation was considered morally wrong to the one before it, and the one before it, and the one before that one and so forth and so on. Morals and ethics evolve and before even I know it I'll be questioning those of the next generation (in fact I already am -- I've seen pre-teens swearing like sailors, which I must shake my head to).

                            This might not be what this thread is about....I would say that the abuse of innocent children in this country concerns me...physical,mental and sexual abuse...

                            Children are abused and to the point of death every day in this country by the people who are suppose to be taking care of them...

                            I read/hear news about this happening all the time...and the punishment of the abusers never fit the crime...people are able to strike up plea bargains that keeps them out of prisons and get nothing more than a slap on the hand...it pisses me off and makes me sick...

                            My heart aches for these innocent children who are treated harshly at the hands of their abusers and by the court system....its as if these crimes don't matter and the children have no rights...

                            I know I am rambling but this is one thing that really bothers me....

                            Children are so innocent and precious.....

                              what concerns me?

                              casting off the yoke of the material world and making myself right in the eyes of God.
