You know… I’m still trying to settle in.
This new ride has that fresh smell and oddly other world feel to it. Like I am the misplaced part of reality. I know I’ll get use to it and settle in soon enough but for now… it’s been one ruckus after another.
I want to take a moment and talk about a couple demons though. See anxiety and depression are skilled killers. This week they caused havoc and took more lives than most know about, but a notable light was consumed by darkness. Media is a blaze about the life and times of that now silent twinkling star.
What I believe my country fails to recognize is the seriousness of the power and threat these demons have. They strike in a blinding second. In one breath a life can be taken from this world and impact so many. Or worse the demon takes control and takes multiple lives in one horrible setting.
It’s easy to criticize and shame what you do not understand. Those of my religious faith say those who committe suicide are doomed to be damned. So many turn away from those who are odd or awkward because of their illnesses, forcing a social and eventual spiritual exile. Leaving those struggling to the only option the demon has left whispered in their ear, destruction.
My point is ultimately you never truly know when that smile, courteous inquiry into how a day is going, hug, holding of hand, or simple kind gesture can soften a heart just enough for the human still connected to it, to reach out for help.
Doing the reverse only perpetuates the opportunity for darkness to prevail.
This is of course not what the Great Cosmic Engineer had in mind when the light switch was flipped on.
Peace be with your soul, and reach out to those you love with love and support. If you don’t then you might just blink and miss all the wondrous adventure life has to share.
