My God, what a waste ! I feel so sorry for this poor soul. Nothing in
this world is so bad or justifiable as to commit suicide over. Life is
a God given gift that's so precious...I wince at this poor man's death
no differently than I do at the scene of impending death I once saw.
It was a poor African child who was so weak from starvation that
the poor child's ribs stuck out like a WW2 Jewish death camp victim.
The poor child of God was barely on his feet, so weak he couldn't
stand up. 10 feet from him, and eyeing him closely was a vulture
who'd landed knowing as soon as the child rolled over, he could
attack and devour the flesh left on his fragile bones witout resistance.
My mom always gave heavily to the African Christian missions. And
when I was a paperboy, I always collected for UNICEF from my route
customers. It just seems all so tragicly a waste for humans to value
material things over the hearts & souls of other decent humans.
Because once you have more than you'll need, it's self defeating
not to share with others in need. I pray for the soul of Mark Madoff.
He should not have paid for the sins of greed of his misguided dad
simply because his dad succumbed to the evil of greed so badly
that he cheated people, and broke their hearts and dreams. We
seem to forget ourselves in all this conspicuous consumption
advertised to lure us to buy things we don't need...That the real
American Dream is to live safely, with Liberty of self determination,
and be able to Love. Those memories, and that grace are all you
can ever hope to take with you when you leave this earth, hopefuly
a wiser person than you were when you were born into it, no matter
what family you couldn't choose to be reared by.
