Crisis

My first thought was simply omg!  The word is constantly being used and hits you in the face, slaps at you from a barrage of news reports and is used to cover everything from terrorist attacks to lone gunman to topics such as to vaccinate or not, to contaminated drinking water.

I remember a time when it alluded to “personal” events, such as a family in crisis.

It is as if this word has taken on a life of its own.  Whether used nationally or internationally the word covers a plethora of events – everything is suddenly a “crisis”. It is used so constantly to grab headlines and attention that it seems as though it’s use has changed from an alert to become a scare tactic to constantly terrify people.

Personally, I cringe at the sight of the word.  What now?  Where now?  Who now?  As I carefully scan the contents of another “crisis” notification.

And here I was, wondering what could I possibly say that hasn’t been said before.
