OH dear — I woke up early this morning (with my breakfast in front of me) and turned on the TV — only to learn of some gruesome drowning of 5 little children. A mother in Texas (allegedly initiated by post partum depression) did the unspeakable and committed what police claim as a “systematic killing” of all her children. Good grief – what kind of world are we living in? We kill each other, beat up on each other, and berate one another — its such a negative world we live in. Children are the most innocent life force on this planet. Sometimes — it just bothers me how people have children and never really understand the implications of what they’ve done. A new human being — brought into the world — should be nurtured, challenged, and protected by any means. What a violent world indeed.

I just think about my little cousin Jane (eight yrs of age) – with her bright and curious nature – and with all the innocent dreams in the world. Whenever I talk to her, I realize something so grand — and that is how open-minded she is. Meaning, she hasn’t developed the sarcastic, cynical, and often times rough skinned exterior most adults generate as they get older and so-called “wiser.” *sigh* Its times like these — I really question life and why we as a species even bother with anything. We are born, we grow up (mostly through some sort of so-so childhood), we live an adult life (which is never really filled with a sense of total fulfillment), and then we die. Bah…..I suppose that is what we intend to describe as the cliched statement of, “the cycle of life” right? Bloody hell.

Listening to:

(Depeche Mode) – Enjoy the Silence

“Words like violence

Break the silence

Come crashing in

Into my little world

Painful to me

Pierce right through me

Can’t you understand

Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted

All I ever needed

Is here in my arms

Words are very unnecessary

They can only do harm

Vows are spoken

To be broken

Feelings are intense

Words are trivial

Pleasures remain

So does the pain

Words are meaningless

And forgettable

All I ever wanted

All I ever needed

Is here in my arms

Words are very unnecessary

They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence”
