This is an old man view of the world

Welcome to our blog, Genzano it story 
and this post, an old man view of the world
An old man views
This is the castle of Monteserico, it happens to be in Genzano di Lucania territory, we have talked about this castle recently, for these reasons I am continuing to write something of the history of this region of Southern Italy.

Old man views
Old people are usually concerned about many things, because they have seen too many bad things happen during their lives, therefore, they always fear for the worse. Because they feel concerned, they believe that their role is that they have to look at what has happened recently and try to compare yesterday events to today happenings, in the hope that they could be able to see what is going to happen next, it is a sort of getting ready for the worst. This does not mean that what they see would really happen, but it might have a good chance that it could happen, therefore, they would like to warn the people around them about those concerns that they have.
As I have said above, we old people worry too much and are usually concerned about many things. Now as you might know, I have been writing a few articles that I have published in Hub Pages, in one of my last articles, I have been talking about, the Norman castle of Monteserico, (The Norman castle of Monteserico, this is the link if you want to check it out), this castle is situated in Genzano di Lucania and it is my native town. In the history of this castle of Monteserico, we have seen that there were many wars and other violent happenings that have happened in these parts of Southern Italy; therefore, I am asking myself, are these violent happenings that have occurred in the past going to happen again?
In my views as an old man, I am looking at the world and see what is happening today, what I see is uncertainty all around, so, I think that the world is going mad these days. For this reason, I feel that the human race that was supposed to know how to behave these days, it is not doing what we are supposed to do. We might think that we have reached the age of reason and we know everything that we need to know, but from what is happening we have not; so, what is wrong with humanity I would like to ask?
So, as an old man today, I see many things that make me concerned. When we look at the news on TV or reading a newspaper, or the news on the Internet is almost impossible to avoid to see the violent things that are happening in the world. One of these bad news is about the terrorist news that is happening very often. We know that the bad and violent news are reported more often than the good and normal everyday news. Because they have happened and the public needs to know, but really, we are becoming tired of all these bad news, because they most times they are so ugly that one wants to switch off the TV, throw away the newspaper and turn off the computer.
So, my dear readers, I have to say that my heart is crying, it is crying because there are so many wrong things going on in the world today, so, I believe that we have to try to do something positive, or at least talk about it, in the hope of finding a way out. Who knows somebody might come up with a solution.
As you will see from the following description, this article is going to be about the world present happenings of these days, so even though I have named this hub, an old man view of the world, this old man needs to attach this story to a particular region of the world, in order to make his story real. Now as it happens I have written already a few hubs about my native town of Genzano di Lucania and also about the second castle of this town called, the castle of Monteserico, which has a real history of its own, sense this castle was the castle of the Normans and Robert Guiscard duke of Southern Italy in the year 1047 or there about, it was also the castle of another famous person Fredrick ll that owned this castle around the 12th century in Southern Italy.
We have to say here that history has a good chance to repeat itself, so, we are worried to a certain point, because what happened in the past were very violent. Our concerns are that we believe that today again history might be taking its course and it might repeat itself; because something might happen again around these regions of Southern Italy, because there are so many illegal emigrant coming in. You see this region of Italy has an history of invasion and changes, starting with the Greeks, then the Romans, Spartacus and others, the Normans, The Swedes just to point out a few.
Today it seems that what is happening is not very important, but, the views of this old man that is writing this article is that: they seem to occupy the whole country and we Italians are letting them in and welcoming them, even if some of us are concerned, but I don’t see that this peaceful welcoming is going to last long, because most regions of Italy are not rich and will not be able to sustain all these emigrants, so, if this refugees problem that we are witnessing today keeps going on, there could be another violent story that could soon unfold in the future in these regions of Southern Italy, therefore we just wonder, if history is going to repeat itself again, and some violent events are going to happen.
So, we should be concerned to say the least. Anyhow this post is becoming too long for the average readers of today, so, see you in our next post called, we should be concerned.
