Life's Realities

 If at all possible, every situation is best assessed with a cool head, detached from emotion, and with brutal objectivity. It is nigh to impossible sometimes, but to rightly assess any given issue, detachment is a must.

Some things are easier said than done, especially when it involves children and the apparent systematic failure of the adults sworn to protect said children from mentally disturbed individuals whose only wish in life is to watch the world burn.

Objectivity and detachment become all the more difficult to master when before having a chance to process one gruesome, inhumane, and blood-curdling event, another comes in its wake, as a wave calls upon a wave.

I’m not going to sit here and try to make sense of it. All I can do is point to the reality that this is the world the godless have envisioned lo these many years. Congratulations! Your dreams have been made manifest.

What did you think would happen when you raised an entire generation on a steady diet of hopelessness and despair? What did you think would happen when you made idols out of the perverted, the wicked, and the immoral? What did you think would happen when the value you placed on human life was the cost of a biohazard bag you put the shattered remnants of an unborn baby in?

Did you not consider that the further one gets from the light, the darker it becomes? Surely you must have; you are, after all our betters, the intellectual elite, the people who mock us common folk for believing in God and family and decency.

Don’t look away now, you pompous windbags. Don’t shy away from the world you helped create with your constant condescension of all that was wholesome. Take credit for your handy work; you are, after all, the architects of the downfall of this present society. Come, come into the light, take a bow, let the masses behold your true face, that they might know the evil that has been living among them.

You can’t start your house on fire and then blame all your neighbors for not stopping you from doing it. You cannot create a society where human life has no value, then be shocked that no one values human life.

We inhabit the world we create, a world our rebellion has despoiled and desecrated to the point that scenes of horror have become commonplace, and ghouls and monsters feel at ease walking about in the daylight.

When the dust settles, or we’ve become so numb to horrors that they don’t even make the news anymore, two things will be made crystal clear: Those responsible will deflect, obfuscate, and blame others for what they have created, and looking back, we will realize we hadn’t seen the worst of it, not by a country mile.

With love in Christ,
