Culture of Death

This is honestly one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen. The drivers who hit the poor man just drove off. Others drove around him and kept going. Finally the cops happen by and do something.

I don't see how anyone can say that there isn't something fundamentally wrong with our culture. Our willingness to live with abortion, poverty, execution, and illegal wars waged on false pretenses have damaged our perception and consciences to the point where we are able to ignore the immediate need and suffering of a human life right in our path.

How can our world be converted to the path of putting some value on human life?

It is very troubling indeed. It reminds me of the Gospel story of Lazarus. The rich man's sin was that he didn't even see Lazarus and so too some of us don't see those who are suffering around us. We've been numbed.
