Ok...so yes, I'm on FaceBook.....there have been some really FREAKY postings, shared by my friends, but written by total nut-jobs who apparently live to scare others...makes me wonder what they are missing in their lives.
One such post was that everyone who reads this particular message will die at 10:35 tonight...yeah, ok. Here's the thing....God knew us before we ever existed, He knew the length of our lives....He did NOT give such awesome power to some random troll posting crud on the internet!!!
Another post was about whoever read the whole story would be the next victim of revenge meted out by the ghost of a girl who was bullied to death.....yeah, see, I read that story...weeks ago, and here I am, alive and well (at least phsyically, my mental health has always been in question, but if you only knew my family.....you'd understand).
The point is....things written like this only serve one purpose....to scare others and to make the writers/posters feel important. How sad is that?? They could better spend their creative energy finding ways to cut gas prices, feed the hungry, bring clean drinking water to people who don't have access.....sad, just sad.
Bottom line....don't believe all you read...especially if you are a child with reasonably intelligent parents who tell you that it's just a lot of crappola....trust me, you are more likely to get a swat on the butt for keeping them awake all night than you are of anything in those postings actually happening!!
