I dunno Lou. It gets to the stage I feel so worn out with being outraged that all I can feel is numb. How many times have we heard these stories? The monstrous predators hiding behind their power and "respectability" or "popularity", the ones who know about it and turn a blind eye for any of the reasons they use to justify the fact they'd rather save their own pathetic asses than save some poor child and the broken children, some of whom will never recover and some DO never recover.
Simply put, much of the human race just fucking sucks and that's an understatement.
Sometimes I have fantasies about gathering up all the animals and children and abused people and taking them to another planet, one where they'll be safe and happy.
Or sanctuaries. I keep dreaming we can start this sanctuary movement and build sanctuaries all over the world - real sanctuaries, where there's no violence, no hate, no fear, no cruelty, no people trying to dominate, exploit and abuse any other sentient being.......places of healing and refuge.
You know honestly, I don't agree with everything Gary Zukav says or even know how much I believe of what he writes, but the concept he articulates about karma and the soul............well, it seems to be one of the few ways you possibly could make sense of human society, that there IS a consequence for every action we take. Maybe I just want to believe it because I just don't want to believe these abusers and sociopaths so often get away with all this.
I just don't "get" why there has to be so much suffering of innocents in this "earth school".
