I guess I just wanted somebody who is older and wiser than me to tell me it's going to be alright. The world has gone mad and I see no end in sight. Surely those from the older generations must have felt the same way at some point in their lives.
There's a reason so many people on the forum have gotten religion. Even in the good times secular thrills feel like a dead end eventually.

If nothing else, it will get your mind off the news.
