I have heard, seen and experienced the most callous words and actions recently in regards to death. Today's example:
I see a headline about a woman that died in a Hospital while waiting to be seen.
The Media has posted a picture of her dead body and possibly a video feed showing
her last moments of life before she passed away. (out of respect, I didn't view it)
WTF?!?! This is the most despicable and inhumane lowly Sh*T the media has pulled yet..
I am SO Disgusted that a person's death has been used for some sort of medieval public entertainment.
IS NOTHING SACRED ANYMORE??!!
What happened to this woman is deplorable. How can they rob her of her dignity? Her privacy?
They DID NOT have to post a picture. They DID NOT have to post a video feed.
If they wanted to report a story about the horrific lack of treatment she received, SURELY there was a more honorable way to bring this injustice to the public.
I am so saddened that this woman will be known like this. NO mention of who she was, her struggles, her successes, her story. Would anyone of US want to be remembered like this?!
Would we want our family and our friends to see US like this?
I am SO sickened that ppl just talk about the dead as some juicy gossip, or some sliver of "Did You hear about?" like it's a chat about a meal you had yesterday..
IS there NO respect for the dead? for the living?
When I was talking with someone the other day I said "Oh, I am sorry to hear about (a person's passing).
The person replied " WELL, it's not MY family!"
I heard myself say "REGARDLESS" in a very terse and loud tone.
The person responded "Well, Whatever."
Indifference really CREEPS the F out of me... seriously...
In another story, A scumbag convicted sex offender/rapist is going to be executed in Florida soon for raping and killing a child. BUT! they had to have a discussion or hearing about how "HUMANE" the execution should be?!?! This wasn't his first offense! He was LET OUT of Jail EARLY on a previous sex offense conviction!
I looked at the picture of the beautiful little boy he killed. I just fell apart. It made me cry so much to see his innocent, sweet smiling face. It made me physically ill just to imagine what he endured.
WHY? WHY? WHY? LOOK at his Sweet face.
That could be ANYONE'S KID.
Yet another National story about a demonic rapist that destroyed a child physically by raping her -she lived. And guess what?! OUR court system says this piece of filth cannot get the death penalty because THAT would be considered cruel and unusual punishment??!?!?!
The child was raped so badly they had to operate to treat her injuries..
What about HER?! What about her destroyed soul? What about her trust? What about her quality of LIFE?
What are we saying about LIFE? Especially to an innocent child that depends on US as a Society to protect them??
How does a child feel when after something as horrific as that happens, their attacker gets 30-60 years of their life,ALIVE, in jail with three square meals, a roof over their head, hey! maybe if You apply yourself (since of course You have nothing but TIME) You can get a college degree -- ON US!
What are we telling the CHILDREN?!
Well, You are a KID, sorry the system isn't tougher, TOUGH BREAK?!
As a Society we are failing the CHILDREN, because we are too "morally" scared to inflict severe/capital punishment where it's due.
I am SO ANGRY.
Why are CHILDREN suffering so in this country? in the world? ANYWHERE????
Why are they (the victims) being treated like some used candy wrapper that fell to the floor?!
Doesn't this OUTRAGE You??? Doesn't ANYONE give a SH*T?!
IF You do nothing more than glance over this post, PLEASE -PLEASE go to www.amw.com and
check out the info on missing children and go to the link http://www.familywatchdog.us/
and do a search of sex offenders in your area. Become AWARE of who is listed. There are pictures, addresses and even last known jobs for these scumbags.
Do it for Your Kid's sake , your nephews & nieces sake, your friend's kid's sake, Your brother or sister's sake.
And if You don't have kids, send the link to people You know who do.
I’m not saying to get paranoid, I know it’s kind of morbid to know these kind of people are among us. It's an ugly fact of life that there are evil, sick people out there doing horrible things, NOT just once or twice but over and over.. story after story tells of these animals committing same horrible acts after release.
There will NEVER be a punishment severe enough to justify a person's or child's death.But we can take the steps toward protecting our children, our communities, and our country.
We all know how successful John Walsh's America's Most Wanted program has been and how valuable his causes are.
The comforting thing is all the criminals that have been found, locked up and prevented from causing harm or danger were found by People..
EVERYDAY PEOPLE that sign on to the web, watched the show, and take the time to LOOK, LEARN and become AWARE.
Something they saw, or noticed led to the capture of a criminal that should not be in mainstream society. It's AMAZING the GOOD we can do if we just get involved..
I Hope and Pray that People still care enough, regardless of whether it personally affects them....
Much Love & Peace
