[quote:Anonymous Coward 18598833:MV8yMDY5MjEyXzM0ODIzMDk0XzQzQTZFQjgw] [quote:RoxykinsIII:MV8yMDY5MjEyXzM0ODIxNzM4XzFGQjk5MTJG] I think this seems to be very common in the US. I have noticed a distinct difference in the way my US cousins act compared to my cousins in Italy. My son broke his leg and I posted a picture on facebook. Not one single person in my family that lives in the US called. Every cousin in Italy either called or emailed me within the next 24 hours, plus my Uncles & Aunts all called my father when they found out from their children. Anyone else notice anything similar? [/quote] yes, I have family overseas as well, and it is true My european friends are real friends, they call when things are difficult, they are concerned if they don't hear from me Nearrly all of my US friends seem to be in a trance...either dazed and confused, depressed or they have become outright hateful and sarcastic, ready to make snarky nasty remarks if told of anyone's injury or personal tragedy I think we are being prepared to kill each other, and be able to walk right past someone in need or pain, desensitized to everything but the most aggressive basic urges soul and character are what you are when no one is looking, and I'm afraid very few see any reward for "doing the right thing" even when people ARE looking, let alone when there is no audience [/quote]
Seriously, it's like they are so judgmental of one another. And most of them that are materialistic are greedy for completely stupid things. They place value in the wrong places and items even. They're so focused on being hip and trendy that they lose focus on what's really important. Things like spending time with loved ones and people who you care about. Things like taking the time to gain a little wisdom every once in a while. And most importantly taking the time and energy into caring! Tell me what you think. Am I right or wrong?
