I spent a whole week without listening to, or reading about any news. And it was AMAZING!!!

The world without news, or social media, is a kinder gentler place. Nothing disrupted my life to inform me of the horrors everywhere......

The world was at peace

Malls were safe to go to.

ISIS didn't exist.

There were no police shootings.

There were no unruly protests against police.

No angry "Black Lives Matters" rallies that turned ugly.

There were no pipe bombs exploding in trash cans.

No dead baby whales washed up on the beach for no reason.

Trump didn't say anything jackassery.

Clinton didn't lie.

Brad and Angelina were still happy.

No sports legends died.

Nobody changed the names of holidays because they didn't want to offend anyone else.

No little kids went into schools with a gun, intent on killing their classmates.

Global warming wasn't a hoax.

At the end of the week, I reluctantly turned the news back on.

And reality came crashing back in.

War

Fires

Floods

Clinton

Trump

Death

Destruction

Murders

Protests

Doom

Gloom

Horror

I turned the TV off.

And threw the remote away.

and them turned around

and picked it right out of the trash.

because....... there’s always Nickelodeon.
