We have had friends stay with us too. We havent seen them in over 10 years, and they now have children. Two lovely, lively children.
I suppose today I am realising what an anticlimax i feel to such a lot of laughter and company.
Still catching up on washing and household chores, well not realy being serious about it as I keep watching the olympics on TV. I have tried not watching the news lately so closely, It made me feel awful all the time.
The killings by delusional people of so many innocents is harrowing. I do appreciate following Reb Jeff's Blog on Joyful Judaism. He puts things into a perspective of redemption when the events are so desperately unholy.
The person who commits a crime against humanity is someones son or daughter. How can hatred and fear of others become so intense that it breaks down the structure of someone's life to the extent of finding justification in inflicting their own 'punishment' on others. How do we as friends and family miss the tell tale signs that someone has become mentally unstable, and could become a threat to others?
What do these massacre killings say about our societies and our humanity. Too big a question for me.
