A fifteen year old boy in Santa Cruz, California who by all accounts, by all who knew him, was a nice, polite, quiet kid, who liked to play with Yo, Yos — wanted actually to kill himself, but first he wanted to know firsthand how another experiences fear and then death; kidnaps, rapes and murders an eight year old girl, then dumps her body in a recycling dumpster and is now facing charges on all counts as an adult.
(A telling aside; the fifteen year old, was playing “Mad World” on the piano, moment before he terrified and then took the eight year old girl’s life. Yes, children “WE” adults have manifested for you and mad world.)
Have we passed the point of no return, where even LOVE can not save us now, as our one sacred charge we have failed and if there were such a thing as a mortal sin, we have committed, for we have broken those who were in our holiest of care, perhaps beyond repair, our children.
And though I understand this is all illusion, the illusion that is may heart stands near entirely breaking, from the insanity we are making, children’s souls in our charge just low hanging fruit for an insane “civilization’s” taking.
How much longer must I wait before together we rise in LOVE and say; enough is enough, for our children, this world gone mad must change, LOVE’s reason, wisdom, compassion must be restored, either that or we must stop our torture of all that lives and end it now, this sadistic, masochistic facade masquerading as “civilization”, survival, death, extinction wearing the masks of living, of loving, of life.
If there is word beyond misery, a tormented feeling beyond despair, my Soul, thanks to our collective “WE” is there.
I can only pray now, that “WE” in this illusion, this experience. are yet within grasp of redemption.
“If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus’ fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.” ~ A.W. Tozer
