You’ll like it whether you like it or not

A facebook friend apparently clicked “Like” on this picture today, and since I can’t seem to convince all of my fb friends to change their settings to “Friends Only” on all of their posts and comments, it showed up on my fb wall.

This poor young man. What a truly awful thing. I feel such sadness and regret for him, and fear that his father died fighting “for our country” in a situation in which maybe we didn’t belong in the first place.

I would like very much to show my sympathy for this young man, and respect for his father.

But do I need to be bullied into it?

First of all, I find the practice of “Liking” posts or pictures of sad, tragic, horrible things somewhat oxymoronic, if not simply moronic.

And then there’s the last sentence.

Keep scrolling to say I don’t care.

Seriously? Those are my only options?
