    What's missing? Any depth of feeling for another human being is what's missing! It's with extreme sadness that we keep hearing of these horrendous acts being committed all over the world, such as you mentioned. Teenage girls hurting a young girl and they put this on "youtube"? They're criminally insane! They're old enough to know better, and certainly, if they dare to call themselves human beings - they should take a closer look at who they really are. What is the point of this act? To feel powerful, superior, what? Acts like these mirror what is filtering down through our societies to the future of our world, the youth, these teenage girls included. Where, in our modern tech-oriented world, is it shown that intellect, understanding, empathy or compassion are heralded as worthy attributes to possess? Our major media-driven sources of info and entertainment, routinely showcase violence, aggression, destruction, selfishness, greed, jealousy, revenge. Man's most negative traits are the most common theme to the majority of the most successful box-office busting movies. Now we can add acts of terrorism to the list of our accomplishments. The edge is being pushed to the extreme and we're pushing the envelope on a routine basis. No holds barred should be the motto for the 21st century! Damn human intellect and understanding! It takes too long! We're all in a hurry to get nowhere fast, and we're achieving that goal! Who thinks with compassion anymore? Ignorance and stupidity are rampant everywhere, as you mentioned. The constant daily bombings in Iraq and elsewhere throughout the Middle East truly indicate we have stopped being human and humane to one another. Innocent bystanders are caught in the crossfire or in the wrong place at the wrong time. This sickness is spreading like a wild fire to all corners of our globe. When will we come to our senses? Your question, "What is wrong with people these days?" is an extremely serious one. We've become sad in all aspects of our daily lives. It's all take, and no give! Let us hope the good among us can right the wrongs, someday, somehow! Continue to live your life as you would want others to live theirs. We lead by example! Where are the parents of those cruel teenage girls? They are in much need of love and guidance. People with love and understanding in their hearts would not be able to act in such debased, abusive ways. Something is sorely missing in their hearts and in their minds to exhibit such atrocious behavior toward another human being! It is almost beyond comprehension what "jollies" are to be gained??????Wars are obscene too. We still haven't figured that one out either! Killing one another to solve our problems...hmmm.....that's the easy way out! Too hard to use our little under-used brains to learn how to understand and live with one another? We are all very close to cancelling out the human race. And if our brains don't save us soon, we'll all be history!!! The insects are waiting in line to take over! They'll probably do a better job at running the planet than we are now! Come on people, before it's too late! Stop, look, and listen to one another, and really begin to understand!!!! No guns, no violence, just a meeting of minds, till understanding becomes the norm and the way!!!! We need to stop killing one another in the name of God, Allah, Lindsay Lohan or otherwise! You are so right in asking "What is wrong"???????

    Its sad. The world this day and age is full of savages and cruelty. Everyone is only looking out for themselves...and most people don't care about the rest of the world until their little lives get interrupted. Even worse, most people believe they can't do anything about that...but it isn't true. Every day you have the chance to impact the world. You can do something nice for someone else, you can show them that there are good people still out there. You can care, pay attention, and inform others. That is what is missing in the world...compassion for one another. The sooner we get back to caring about our neighbors, the sooner the world gets better.

    Look Pal ..

    People are the same .. it is there Nature ..

    just look back in the History .. in near past there is the 2 wars ..

    The human nature keeps going ..

    just we trying to look better nowadays ..

    still there is some humans like you .. and most of us .. believed that there is no bad in world make it more decent or more happy ..

    there is a god .. and all of this to balance ..

    believe me .. if you don't see the bad and ugliness .. you will never appreciate the good things around you and the beautifully stuffs you pass every moment ignoring that there is still alot of good people around you .. and alot of good things you have .. and alot of others are willing to die for it ..

    YES !!!!!!!!! Common Decency. Parents aren't being parents anymore and children are being desensitized by all the movies, video games, even cartoons that depict violence as nothing.

    Just look at what Trump did w/Miss. USA ! She did drugs, drank, partied hard, skipped planned engagements etc. and he LET HER KEEP HER JOB!!! She should have been fired !! We let people get away w/anything and still hold them up on a pedestal for our children.. ie: athlete's taking drugs (steroids etc.), celebrities being rude, drunk etc. and getting away with it w/a slap on the hand etc. I could go on but it just frustrates me and gets me even more angry. I'm trying to raise my daughter to be good/kind/treat people the way she wants to be treated and to own up to everything she does and it's hard when other adults don't help when she's not in my care. Just my two cents...

    ok, ok, ok considering even as is leaving a cutsie be conscious on a lunch field seen chivalry? i might want to say a guy that places a cutsie be conscious on a lunch field became a woman! i do not imagine I ever seen a guy %. me a flower till were in a field of them! If some guy shows up at my door with freshly picked vegetation declaring they reminded him of me. no longer in common words and that i wondering he's weird and wonderful i'm checking my neighbor flower packing bins. seem some adult men do have a frustrating time being romantic in reality some adult men are not any further romantic in any respect. Romance is provided in a lot of sorts. For some that is a candle lit pizza, for some that is a positive dinner. Romance ability no longer something more effective than a act of popularity and emotion. no longer all dudes run there girlfriends bubble baths. you want to enable your dude understand you even like them first of all. I advise geez, even as became the in basic terms right time your chum even took a bubble bathtub? Has her guy ever even seen her take one? that is frustrating for a guy to do something romantic in case you do not enable him understand what you imagine is somewhat romantic. adult men are not any further ideas readers. they're going to do it in case you position out the right alerts and messages. What about anytime a guy opens a door for you and waits so that you may head by ability of earlier he does or opens you vehicle door? I advise in case your no longer relationship adult men that do the little issues your in basic terms relationship the incorrect adult men.

    stress. too many people are stressed out and Americans have anger issues. lol.

    Seriously though, we keep throwing people into Iraq, of course they're going to keep fighting back.

    Americans are driving longer and on crowded roads and spend less precious time with their children to teach them proper values.

    Everyone should take a vacation now and then just to sit back and let it all sink in.

    You're right, but, unfortunately, what do you expect? Kids are very impressionable. They see violence every day on TV, on the news, on the internet and especially in the movies. They tend to behave the way they see society behave. Also, there are alot of people who are mentally ill and need help, but they aren't getting any.
