How are you today? It's such a simple question, and yet it is also one of the most difficult questions we ask one another. More often than not, we don't truly express our feelings for fear of burdening others with our personal situation. But that speaks to a much larger topic. In wake of another horrific tragedy, the issue of mental health keeps coming up. While it is easy to point to mental health at a time of tragedy, the reality is it is something that isn't taken seriously enough in everyday life. Mental and emotional health are critical, especially in an age where people are stressed so greatly. In this episode, we look at the importance of mental health and how we can mitigate the negative effects in the hopes of becoming a more functional society of sensitivity and compassion.
In the exclusive content section, In The News, we look at the latest doomsday prediction. Yes, the world is going to end on Wednesday October 7, according to the E-Bible Fellowship. Obviously, it won't happen. The internet will have a good laugh and it certainly sparks the fascination of apocalypse fans like myself. But what about the people who truly believe it is the end? What kind of person buys into this? It certainly isn't a Christian belief, in the truest sense of the Christian mission. The terrifying reality is what it says about the people who think the end is here. They aren't preparing for the end; they've given up hope that the rest of the world is worthy of life itself.
