"Look at this generation that's so broke and broken. They're more worried about what will be their next meal. They're trying to catch up with the cost of living ignoring the cost/value of life. If our leaders doesn't address this sooner I see more chaos in the near future"

"Wait for paramedics, I suspect none of these people have had first aid training"
