Nature Reversed

How i wish this blog had been given the chance to sink into oblivion, to remain as a sweet aftertaste of candy after a bitter meal. However this has not been possible ... what is happening is unfair, so UNFAIR...

Fathers mourning their sons...nature is reversed, and the future is nipped in the bud... no matter who he is, no matter his political inclination, he is first and foremost a young man, a human being, a father, a brother, a son...

We all wished that the serial assasinations had come to an end, that political representatives would be able to get to work safely. It seems we have the highest mortality rate on the road from accidents unrelated to cars...

We're being cynical, we're tired, we're sad.... we see a young man lying in a coffin, wrapped in a flag, held on the shoulders of his friends, raised high above the crowds... white ribbons, representing life, young blood, spent. Tears are trapped, tears overflow, in the silent recesses of our being... we are being eroded; our morality and our humanity are eaten away by the acidic, horrific series of events that have marked in blood the wish of a nation to be free. But is this freedom? Is this high priced commodity even within reach? Prayers fill the air, chants mumbled seeking peace and redemption for a soul already in the hands of God... Leaving the living numb...

People die all the time, but what really matters is whether we choose to continue to be human or to become drones in some video game where someone else is playing "Grand Theft Auto". Or "Grand Treason".
