I read recently in the newspapers of three little sisters in India the oldest one age just eleven, she went to get her two younger sisters from school, men grabbed them, ganged raped them, killed them and threw them in a well! I cried silent tears for those children. How frightened they must have been and the pain they would have suffered, someone in the village must have heard their cries, they escaped but I hope they are caught..... these children were my last thoughts as I lay in my bed and my first thoughts when I awoke. Their house must be SO silent now without them. R.I.P.
Then last night, a USA 'true crime' was on TV it was of a young woman who had been to her place of worship and it had finished late. As they put the pieces together it turned out she had run out of petrol and walked to a petrol station with her petrol can, while she was there a man with a van with a religious logo on the van (the man was not religious but a workman who was using the van for the weekend) he offered her a lift back to her car, she trusted him at face value and he knocked her out, when she came to, he raped her and stabbed her many times in the breast and pain she must have felt and the fear “knowing she was going to die” then he stabbed her in the head and she died! Her poor elderly Mum was still raw with grief many years later. How do you console the Mum? It's like she had just found out. The forensic said, “She was tortured” he'd used a screw driver, and dumped her wrapped up naked by a large garbage bin! I can't imagine her pain that night, nor her Mum's now. R.I.P.
Many years ago, I have kept the newspaper story of this child again in India, she was age about nine. She had been chained by her neck to the side of a building, where she had no shade! How cruel is that! As I read I thought, I don't have the money but I'll give towards whatever they need to rescue her from her plight! But sadly she died a few days after the photo was taken! My heart was broken! I looked at her sad little face, no one set her free, or cared for her, she was left for anyone to abuse her further......... man or beast! I shed many tears for her. R.I.P.
About a year later I have also kept this cutting, it is in an oriental country it shows an old man walking on the path, with his hands behind his back taking a stroll and in the road, at the gutter is a young girl dead, she looks about five years old and no one bothers, or cares it just seem like the norm there ….... R.I.P.
There are so many horrors that we have all read about, it got me thinking, none of them wanted to die, or suffer. There are some very EVIL people out there. And last night as I walked alone from one part of the the café to meet my Daughter after she had been to the concert I wasn't looking forward to the very long lonely walk, in the semi dark to the to the huge concert hall, I thought of the girl who was stabbed and I thought there would be no one about and I wouldn't be able to run to get to the other building …. I was afraid. I noticed three lads standing together to my left and I tried to look brave, I felt like a sitting duck! Then jumped but it was my own shadow! I thought, I hope it's not my time to die! Was relieved when I arrived safely to the other building, then I joined the other 16,000 as we went to get our train and those who went home in their cars.
I remember when I was in my teens and much older and much younger, I was afraid to die! I would suddenly wake up in the night convinced, this was it! I would wake my parents and ask Mum to pray with me! She always did, she was never cross, how would that have helped me? She would reassure me I was Ok, and after her prayer, I would feel a tad more peaceful, enough to eventually fall off to sleep. Also when I was in my teens, if the bus was there approaching the bus stop, I would run across the road to make sure I caught it! But that was not wise and Mum asked me not to do it, and I realized, it would probably be curtains if I got hit. So I stopped.
And what about the lady who was on that bus in India with her boyfriend, the shame, the pain, the humiliation, no one deserved that!!! Those men were EVIL beyond belief!!! R.I.P.
There there is Anni, remember her? How FRIGHTENED must she have been? R.I.P.
Death is all around, all over the world, they say, “We can't escape death or Taxes” Indeed it is our final enemy! Sometimes the fear of it, just overwhelms me! I try to do my part and keep myself safe when I am driving or when I am walking …. I had a pain under my breast bone on the left hand side. All sorts of worry went on in my mind..... so I went to my Doctor, he said I hurt my ribs coughing! I went back again for it had not gone after three weeks, so I have asked for a chest e-ray!
Yes, I have written a Will, for I know I won't live forever, when the man came to finalize it, he said, “Lots of men don't want to write a Will, they see it as a death sentence,” and he asked my Husband if he would like to and he said, “No.”
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
