‘What’s Going On?’

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.


With all going on in the world today, I ask, what must a man do if he lives in an absurd world that has no answers? Why are so many American citizens looking for answers? And seeking solutions in a place where it does no good to keep asking for an explanation. The answer to the question appears to be with the leaders in the White House. They all allow the suffering to happen.

Some American citizens are renouncing their citizenship, where many are still holding fast to an American passport, but they no longer feel like a citizen. All of the crises can not be correct just because time is passing. It depends on the country that can come together as one. Because the nation can not pull together, many citizens are thinking about moving to the United Kingdom, so the big question is: What’s Going On?’

How does a man shoulder the burden of life to find the resources he needs to seek healing when a lot is going wrong? Where does a man seek eternal comfort in a universe that selectively applies oppression and suffering to him?

What to do when many in this world see so much go wrong that it no longer feels like home? Where do various people turn when America, a place many called home from birth, no longer makes them feel welcome?

How can people find ‘a peaceful mind’ in a world where many are denied protection, making it hard for them, so they have no dramatic way of changing their life?

What changes America from a place that once brought joy and warmness to countless hearts? How can a country that was torn from a loving, peaceful community avoid feeling cold and alienated?

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


How can anybody experience what life offers if they feel like life have no meaning? A word to the wise, you can’t find the meaning of life without first accepting that life is what you make of it.

Determining whether life is or isn’t worth living comes with you experiencing what it offers. The seriousness of how people experience what life offers comes with the feeling life has no meaning. It can also come with did I take the tools life given me and create what defines and matters to me?

I ask, why are you looking for answers in a place that you will never understand even a small fraction of what’s going on, and the leaders will never provide explanations?

The world is incomprehensible; it makes little sense, and you will not understand it. The key to understanding what the world has to offer lies to filter the information you need from what you don’t.

Where do various people turn when America, a place they resident from birth, once felt safe, no longer secure? And it hard to relate to Trump’s Make America Great Again campaign, a statement that no longer shares common bonds and beliefs.

We all see police brutality is a problem; racism increases and mass shootings happen too often. How do people tackle the struggles in life when they continually experience setbacks, making it hard for them to move forward? Again, I ask, what’s going on?


How does a man who has everything still be unhappy? Many today are facing far more difficult circumstances than what they own. We hear of people who have it all hard to maintain 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 searching for answers to some most challenging issues. Some are turning to Washington political candidates. People from the house of representatives’ members like Senators, Vice President, Mayor, and the President.

I say we should 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 need 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 should 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 suddenly 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, ‘What’s Going On?’


Our Nation is in the division stage, but it is 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 questionings, '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 Americas 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 for 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 at uncertainty and if a solution isn't found soon, the climax, the earth, citizens, companies, and consumers everywhere will be facing a devastating end, how can anyone not wonder, 'What's Going's on?'


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 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 on 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?’
