I Love Social Media

I am active in social media. Believe me, I blog, I'm on Facebook, my blog is posted in a bunch of different places. I am Google+, I can't list all the places I can be found online because there are so many. I get feedback and comments from lots of places too. I get comments from friends and also from people offering all kind of  'miracle' cures provided I send in a few (hundred/thousand/million) dollars to help. And every so often, I hear from some very 'odd' (odd, in the weirdest sense of the word) people.

So yesterday I wasn't very surprised to get a comment back on "Call Me Ms. Grumpy". It read:

"stop being so self centered and focus on something,somebody beyond yourself-yeah i get it,your dying,but we are all dying,your just dying faster--go to a battle field cemmaetary and see all the young people who died very early--your nothing special"

For a nanosecond, I thought to myself 'what an ass'. But then I did think that in the grand scheme of things me being self centered is the least of my worries but it is true that I can be a tad focused on me. And its my blog so I can say what I want (because its supposed to be about me anyway).

However, I do get the point. There are so many people who are dying senselessly in needless wars who we should be concerned about.
