If I Could See What the Angels See

There's a lot of things going on in today's world. I find myself getting overwhelmed with the news I read, and so often it's too much to handle. I shut down emotionally and spiritually.

I wish I could see what the angels see. I wish I could see inside the hearts of people who act in hurtful ways toward each other, whether they are in positions of power or simply in individual relationships that make up systems which can hurt people. Is there good in people's hearts that causes them to act in a certain way, whether that comes across or not? Or is it the "original sin" many Christians believe to be in us that causes us to act out in malicious ways?

I wish I knew. I want to believe that people are good at heart, but sometimes I wonder.
