WHILE I AM NOT CURRENTLY ABLE TO SIT HERE AND HAMMER OUT SEVERAL BLOGS A DAY AS I ONCE DID, I DO MANAGE TO KEEP UP WITH WORLD AFFAIRS.
WHEN I READ THE FOLLOWING, MY HEART AND MIND WERE DEEPLY TROUBLED.
SUCH LOSS, SUCH CONTINUATION OF LOSS.
FOR MY MANY READERS IN THE U.S., RUSSIA, SPAIN, MY OCCASIONAL READERS FROM FINLAND, FOR ALL WHO HAVE SUFFERED THESE SENSELESS KILLINGS, THE TEA ROOM SENDS YOU HEARTFELT CONDOLENCES.
MY TEARS FALL WITH YOURS.
I SO WISH IT WOULD ALL END AND NO MORE LIVES WOULD BE LOST ANYWHERE.
YOUR LOSS GRIEVES ME DEEPLY, DEEPLY.
Islamic state claims responsibility for Russia stabbing attack.
7 stabbed in Siberian attack; Russia skeptical of IS claim.
Spain says cell behind Catalan attacks dismantled, police seek van driver.
Finland stabbings 'a likely terror act;' Ties to Spain eyed
And at home?
More of the same, I fear...
2 State Troopers Wounded In Shooting In Western Pennsylvania
One Officer Killed, Three Wounded In Pair Of Shootings In Jacksonville and KIssimmee, Florida.
What do these murders, these attacks ever accomplish for those who choose to do such things?
Their heinous acts usually end in their own lives being lost as well.
Time passes and nothing changes.
Perhaps the one thing it does accomplish is to sow the seeds for the need for revenge...more killing...retribution.
AND THEN WHAT?
THE VICIOUS CYCLE NEVER ENDS.
OUR LOVED ONES ARE LOST TO US, TIME GOES ON, THE PAIN REMAINS.
BUT THOSE WHO DESIRE TO KILL ALSO REMAIN WITH US, DECADE AFTER DECADE, CENTURY AFTER CENTURY.
MAY WE REACH A TIME WHEN ONE GENERATION DECLARES "ENOUGH!" AND STANDS BEHIND THAT.
MAY AT LEAST SOME OF US LIVE TO SEE THAT DAY WHEN HUMAN BEINGS DECIDE TO STOP KILLING FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS.
I MAINTAIN HOPE.
I HAVE PURPOSED IN MY HEART TO MAINTAIN HOPE.
MAY LIFE AND THE LOVE YOU FEEL FOR YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, FELLOW CITIZENS GIVE YOU ALL HOPE.
