I am not a teacher.Dear teachers,
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following excerpt from an English text?
“First of all, I believe I’m at least as much as, if not more of a compassionate human being than your average Joe. Bigotry, poverty, unkindness in all of it’s (should be its)multitude of variations, these are some of the goings on in the world today that sicken me. So it’s cool with me to be involved with causes that seek to do battle with these plagues that are at present running rampant on our messed up planet Earth."
goings on = indecencies
running = ongoing over a period of time
rampant = occurring without restraint and frequently, widely
Thank you for your efforts.
