Dark entry


      I sat with a dying man a few years ago.  He knew it was in time.  We talked about how time goes by so much faster then we ever though possible.  He talked about how grateful he was that he had lived long enough that he was no longer afraid of this final journey as he didn't think it was the final journey.   Just another chapter he said.  He was looking forward to the next chapter.

       This theme is repeated over and over again.  Believe me when I say I have seen a hundred people die.  Which ones are the calmest?  Which ones that believe the best is yet to come?   The ones who have been the kindest.  Not your fanatics.  Not those who have harmed anyone.  Not those who who have lied or cheated on purpose.  It is those who did the best they could.  Those who treated others like they would like to be treated.  Those who cared about how others felt.

      This is a sad world these days.  People killing and maiming people in Gods name.  It has been that way though out history.  You have the Spanish Inquisition, the
Mountain Meadows Massacre which the mormon's did in Gods name, The Iranians murder innocent people, all in the name of God. German's killing the Jewish.  Blacks hating the whites, whites hating the blacks. Radical Muslims  strapping bombs on 8 year old children and handicap people.  They need an excuse to commit the most horrible of sins, the murder of their children and ours.  They have let someone else, with ulterior motives, dictate their thinking and inner most thoughts.  Too lazy to think on their own they blindly follow another's crazy thoughts. Madness most people could not believe they would ever follow.  Hitler, Stalin, Chairman Mao, Saddam Hussein, Che Guevara, , Castro, you name them.

     There is no such thing as suicide bombers, they are murderers.  Why give them a fairly acceptable name.  Call them mass murderers.  That is what they are.  No matter how much they try to justify it, there is no justification.  They murder....plain and simple. In the name of God because they truly have no concept of what that means.  The God I know, the God I believe in, does not accept murder in his name at all....ever.  The God I believe in is the same one Jesus taught me about as a child.  A forgiving God.  A Loving God.  A God of Peace. 

        So this is my dark entry.  The next one will be light and airy.

We have to get those things out once in a's the only way we can deal with the insaneness of murder. It's hard to fathom how they justify it.

Well part of your entry is dark Julie but those people you have watched dying that know there is a hereafter then it is not darkness they face but light in the hereafter to come. I feel so sorry for those that get assigned to strap those bombs on their bodies and being told they are doing it for God. Well enough about that for all that is so depressing to even think of. I hope it is a sunshiny dry day today for your auction and that a lot of people come and you get some good prices for all you have to sell. It has rained here during the night. I don't know how much though. Let us know how today went whenever you get the time to post again. Helen

This is not dark at all to me.  It is truth.  I find constant b*tching about nothing of any importance dark, not real life. This is real life. ~Mary

Because you sometimes sit in at the end of lives you will know how precious life is more than most.
These mindless thugs and murderers who commit such heinous crimes will be forever lost in their own evil ways.
I didn't see this entry of yours as a black entry.  More a caring, reflective and thoughful one.
