"Apathy, What is Apathy?"

“Apathy, what is apathy?” I think I heard that line in a movie, or someone asked in Philosophy… Anyway, forget history, it is our children who will aim and shoot; ashamed even, that our complacency and blood ruins their veins.      
     
Everyday we witness the slaughter of innocence and choose not to do something. We throw a full bowl in the bin right next to the starving then rush back in to our mansion and call the police on the hopeless sleeping outside because they are messing with our lawn.      
     
But again, We are the same people who veto peace for war.

Author's Note
When my children and their children's children ask me about injustice, at least I will tell them; my pen and I, we stood up for the oppressed.
