Marilyn Monroe once said “I have feelings too. I am still human. All I want is to be loved for myself and for my talent.”There seems to be an underlying theme with the occurrence of recent events. From the “Black Lives Matter” movement to Kim Kardashian being robbed [Yes I am very serious].
This past week the news broke that tv personality, Kim Kardashian West, was robbed at gun point in her hotel room in Paris. The robbers allegedly tied her up and held a gun to her head while she was begging and pleading for her life. It is alleged that they stole over 10 million dollars worth of jewelry.
It really broke my heart when I saw the reaction and comments of people. Some called her “an attention whore…who would do anything for publicity.” Others called her even more degrading, unthinkable names and wished she was raped–even worse, wished she was killed. One person commented underneath the story saying ” they should have done the world a service and gotten rid of one of the kardtrashians.”
But this post is not necessarily about Kim Kardashian, but about the reaction of the public. No matter how much you may hate Kim, she is still a person with the same attributes that makes you and me a living being-a human.I can only imagine the type of fear Kim was in thinking if this was really it. If she would never see her husband and two beautiful children again. To hear people wish evil and wrongdoing upon a person is unfathomable.
Seems like this current culture is getting more and more desensitized to the value of a human life and that is a pretty scary thought. From Kim, to the black lives being lost, they are all still human. How can we as a generation get back to recognizing the value of a human life?
