Stop the Madness

I woke up to this glorious day, depression now under control, feeling good in as long as I can remember, and started thinking about something other than myself. All the shit going on in the world, bombings going on here, to detract attention from what’s going on over there, news they want us to believe true that is absolute lies and fabrication, people of all nationalities divided and conquering. It’s enough to make you want to puke; but where my thoughts turned today, as I drove over the expanse of water, smooth as glass, reflecting a perfect southern sky that makes you happy to be alive to witness, was to the darkest depths of the human soul.

I’ve seen a few posts here and there of late, the response and reaction of people horrified and unbelieving that this could be going on in their own towns and cities, and yet no real outcries to put a stop to the madness; and the worse sort of madness it indeed is.

I’m talking about the parents searching for lost children, infants, teens, young adults; gone missing without a trace; another face on a poster blowing in the breeze on a light pole somewhere that most people passing by don’t even bother to notice. I’m talking about those same lost children, infants, teens and young adults, stolen or sold, drugged and enslaved, tortured and raped, over and over to the highest or lowest bidder; anyone willing to pay.

I’m talking about the abhorrent, unconscionable crime of human trafficking and why the fuck it’s not the number one criminal priority in the world to stop!

We all have things we like to think of as “our cause,” displaying the bumper sticker labeling ourselves as proponents of; signing online petitions to save this species or that, but you don’t see much promoting the end of people stealing and selling people; not just for commercial sexual abuse, but physical forced labor, domestic slavery, fighters in armed conflicts, and yes, the removal and selling of human organs for transplant.

Human trafficking is the second largest International crime in the world.

IN THE WORLD!

Something to think about . . .

Thought for the day ~

I think the sooner we realize that this country is made up of a multitude of people with wonderful humanitarian values, that don’t necessarily subscribe to Christian based religion; stop labeling ourselves and simply live as good and decent people, the better off this country and the world will be.

To anyone who will listen ~

Tonight I lay with a heavy heart, due to the ugly truths of the world set and seen before me this day. Unconscionable acts of unspeakable cruelty and violence, carried out by fellow human beings who were borne into this world just as I was, just as you were. I ask the questions, over and over; why are these things happening, why are we allowing them to happen, and why aren’t we all actively doing whatever we can to make them stop?!

Are we so jaded and numb to these things that we don’t actually comprehend what we’re seeing, what we’re being shown; that because it’s not affecting us personally from the comfort of our favorite spot in front of the television or computer that we’re ignorant enough to believe that it doesn’t affect us; or are we just too fucking lazy and self-serving to be bothered?!

We each have the ability and I dare say responsibility, to do everything in our power to be the good in the world, to right the wrongs, to stop the insanity, to use our voices to scream at the top of our lungs, to anyone who will listen that Enough is Enough!

We cannot look the other way and just hope the ugly truths magically disappear or expect others to make the changes for us. Life just doesn’t work that way.

Step outside your selves, look around you, find what touches you most deeply, take up the cause, educate your self and get involved, take that first step toward making a change in something you know in your heart needs to be changed, needs to be stopped.

Stop believing that you can’t make a difference, that one lone voice cannot change the world, and know instead that you can, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

We all can.

Peace, jill

Of monsters and men

of monsters and men jillterry

When you stop behaving like a human being and cross over into monster territory, all human rights should be stripped away. At that point you become a lab rat; studied and dissected, until the answer to, “What the fuck is WRONG with people” is found.

Unless it simply boils down to some people being borne into the world with evil in their souls, in which case exorcism should become the norm and not a fictional hot topic for entertainment purposes.

Let’s face it; state sanctioned prison rehabilitation was not created to save lost souls.

That is all.
