‘What’s Going on?’

Updated on October 12, 2018

Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed, I write.


What do, many do when this world has so much going wrong that it no longer feels like home? Where do various people turn when America, a place many have called home for a long time no longer feels like home?

How can people find ‘a peaceful mind’ in a world where some people are wrongfully denied forgiveness and has no dramatically way of changing their life?

What changes America from a place that once brought joy and warmness to many hearts? How can a country turn from a warm, loving, peaceful place to just feel cold and alienated?

There's an old saying that says, a home is considered where the heart feels most satisfied. Moreover, because so many no longer feel like this world is a place they can call home the utter question is: What’s Going On?’

Some American citizens are giving up their citizenship where many are still holding on to an American passport as they no longer feel like an American. With all that is going on in America today makes many citizens think about moving to the United Kingdom, so the hard question is: What’s Going On?’


Indeed, many today are facing far more difficult circumstances than the conditions of what most retains before things turned so critical and many are still waiting to see peace as an endpoint, again I ask, What’s Going On?’

As so much development in life-condition change for the worse, many are currently searching for answers to some of the most challenging issues. Some are turning to the political candidate like the house of representative’s members, Senators, Vice President, Mayor, and the President.

I say we should be willing to do what is necessary to bring healing to this nation and to do that we the people need to turn to God by doing what 2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV) says, many needs to humble themselves and pray. Turn from their wicked ways. Then will God hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal the land.

With all going on, my main concerns, how can any intelligent American vote and allow a man in office as President like Donald Trump with no Political background who spends too much time twitting and raging when he supposed to care and take care of issues in the world to prevent things from going wrong.

Instead, he's the exact cause of chaos and the reason why sudden things go wrong. And not to mention the Trump horror of a tax plan he put in place, which is one of the most significant changes that include the worst recession and the most bull wash ever since the Great Depression, I can't help but ask the question, 'What’s Going On?’


Our Nation is in the division stage, though it’s not too late to mend it back together anew before it's too late. The past year was an unpredictable one for America. We saw one of the last questionable Presidential election to ever exist.

The wrong candidate was elected and moving America one step notably toward extinction. The populations are at risk to decrease hugely and war more at venture for the first time in many years, leaving many questioning, 'What's Going's on?'

The world has witnessed an anger President put his emotion and feeling out on Twitter on regular, petty acting like a big crybaby taking for granted, the needs America are in, not realizing the consequences He places on the people and businesses that are very real. I am left wondering, What's Going's on?'

For America, the Presidential election should have been taken more seriously, do many not know the risks and the opportunities that will be missed and the significance of having a caring and in demand leader with a political background.

An amateur leader cannot lead the way with a long-term responsibility, and right now the state of the Earth is getting worse. The pressures of war are deepening, and for the first-time health care stands a chance of uncertainty and if a solution isn't found soon, the climax, the earth, citizens, companies, and consumers everywhere with be facing a devastating end, how can anyone not wonder, 'What's Going's on?'


The youth violence, burglary, street gangs, drugs, and killing have been a significant concern for many years. Except for today with the economy in crisis, and America in need of leaders to have our backs and care to protect the nation, burglary is at the highest rates that robberies take place during the daylight hours.

The gun violence and mass public shooting are on the rise and getting deadlier by the day. And many states are a part of the dangerous trend as there is an essential need for stricter gun laws.

Poverty-stricken people are selling drugs and see it as significantly more of a statistical way to survive; I can't help but wonder, 'What’s Going On?

The president’s motives remain unclear to violence, and mass shooting leaves many Americans shaking in fear of being a victim of a mass shooting that some do not feel safe to worship and praise God in the church.

Why on earth should people fear to worship God as the church should be the last place anyone feels afraid for their life. Some do because the mass shooting has happened in several churches already, the big question place in many minds, 'What’s Going On?’

To surpass it all children shouldn't have to feel threatened by gun violence in school. The school shooting should have been stopped because a school shooting is an attack on education and is preventing the children from learning.

In 2012, after one of the worst mass gun shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, where a severe attack claimed the lives of six adults and twenty children, things should have changed.

Instead, Florida School was hit by gunfire where over twelve were injured, three adults died, and fourteen children lost their lives. Again, the question is 'What’s Going On?’


Things now are getting so bad in the world that more and more American people don’t believe in their heart America is home and it certainly not in their mind to continue to call America home. One can't help but wonder, 'What’s Going On?’

Some of the Things Wrong in the World Today

If you, like me, you sit and watched the news on television and wonders, ‘What’s Going On?’ The shocking, tragic things that are happening are occurring so quickly and unexpectedly that no one feels or is safe and no person can foretell what tomorrow will bring.

The Bible is fulfilling more and more, we are living in the last days, and the world is coming to an end. Just to mention a few things that are going on today to share what the Bible says will happen in the last days.

Too many earthquakes as the Bible says, "There will be great earthquakes" Luke 21:11 King James Version (KJV) And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Today, more earthquake has hit and destroyed different state from California, Texas, to North Dakota and more people were killed, injured and left homeless than we care to imagine and it leaves us wondering, What’s Going On?’


A nation divided, the Bible says, “Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.” Matthew 24:7 King James Version (KJV) For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Parent against children and children against parent, Luke 12:53 King James Version (KJV) The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

A food deficiency.” Again, back to Matthew 24:7 King James Version (KJV) For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Maybe people are unaware of the food shortages; researchers state that farmer product have resulted in dramatic changes in farming and not for the best. Although more people and children are starving overseas or developing countries, it’s more common in America than most American know.

"The air is polluted, making the water's contaminated, so it's not safe to fish and eat fish as many loves to do. Some of the animals are going obsolete, as the KKK is animated and on the rise, the economy is down, and we really want to know, 'What’s Going On?’

Too many drops out of school as education are increasing tremendously, and the saddest part is the police officer who was sworn in to serve and protect are going corrupt and shooting innocent people, and that’s enough to make anyone ask, 'What’s Going On?’

The last words to say is echoed and shared best by the late Marvin Gate; "There's too many of you crying Brother, brother, brother, there's far too many of you dying. "You know we've got to find a way to bring some lovin' here today to all of What’s Going On?’

'What’s Going On?’

Do you wonder what do, many do when this world has so much going on and do you question, What’s Going On?’

        Hello, Pam, you hit the nail right. And yet, a solution needs to be found and the solution must come from God in answer to the prayers of the saints. You have quote and note from the Bible God's displeasure with mankind. That is the cause of what's going on!

        Dru is not the answer. Government, politics, sociology, psychology, and science can not solve the challenge. Thank you.
