death. why does it affect our emotions instantly? whats worse is when i don’t “feel anything.” If i’ve never met the individual, the news of death seems only informational. even when it’s a friend’s friend’s sister, all i can offer is honesty expressing my sympathy and apologizing for not knowing their discomfort.
sometimes the transition into reality comes quick. being involved in EMT ambulance service, i once overhead radio transmissions of a cardiac arrest. gripping… definetly, but i found out a day later that the transmissions were about the mother of a co-worker at a christian summer camp. i was shocked and even caried guilt that i’d witnessed such an event, albeit via radio.
although i don’t understand “the world” or “war,” i do know that the life that i live for christ should never involve such a judgement upon another as death.
random and unorganized…. i’m off to eat “midnight breakfast” at the ‘rot.
anyhow, deeper thoughts are surfacing here in K305
enjoy the day…
