Who am I?
I’m not sure who is the author of this, but I agree with it:
I have destroyed more men than all the wars of all nations combined.
I massacre millions of people each and every generation.
I have wrecked more homes than all other causes known to you.
I cause the downfall of the greatest civilizations in history.
I spare no one.
My victims are rich and poor, young and old, strong and weak.
I do not respect color or creed.
Children shall know me to their eternal sorrow.
I cast my shadow over every thought of man.
I hide in unseen places and I go about my work silently.
You have been warned of my presence, but you do not listen.
I never sleep and I am everywhere you are.
You cannot hide from me.
Illness, revulsion, disease and death follow me and are my friends.
I will give you nothing.
I will take everything you have and then seek more.
I will cause you to turn away from all you once believed in.
I will blind your eyes to the sins of your elected leaders.
I go where my master orders.
The Prince of Darkness alone sends me into your life.
Once allowed inside, seldom am I asked to leave.
America , allow me to give you rest.
I will take away any concern for individual responsibility.
I will bring you bliss.
I am your friend.
I am Apathy.

The phrase “I don’t care” represents the plague of apathy perfectly for me. Throughout my young life I used that phrase to get out of doing most anything that I wasn’t required to do.
I heard it once said that apathy is the opposite of love. I can see this being true due to love motivating us to serve others and apathy is a reason people don’t help or serve at all.
Spencer: I agree, love is a huge (if not the) motivating factor in service, and caring about others. This caring about others should wash over every area of life: religious, social, political, and all the rest.
