The World In Peril: July 24th – July 30th

I am adding this weekly segment to the Depraved Indifference after reflecting on how ignorant we can become to what is happening around us in world affairs.  There are multiple hot spots around the world that create an incredible amount of violence and destruction.  And while it is not an attractive topic, it is an important one.  So each Sunday I will give you a cumulative view of the world’s destructive tendencies.

I am just sharing news stories at this juncture as there is very little narrative that I could add that would enhance the story.
