Most people have probably heard the news, the words that Alec Baldwin allegedly left on the answering tape which was leaked from confidential documents and evidence in the custody, presumably, of the Court.
Yes, one of the first questions is why should this even be our business? Because stars put themselve out there, wanting us to pay attention to increase their movie returns? Yes, no, I don’t know.
The issue though again, is the weight of words and who we are in any given moment.
At what points should we be judged and frozen in time, never to have a chance to live differently?
I see those words and understand the damage. Not sure what causes a parent to stop acting as the parent and to verbally abuse their child in such a way.
Is the media now telling that child she is damaged? Her parents, or at least one of them, are psychotic?
I know nothing of this child. I don’t know if she is old beyond her years and has realized the deficiencies of ill timed and inappropriate and abusive anger.
I simply don’t know.
What I do know is that recording and the family’s grief wasn’t meant for us, but know it is ours.
What will we do about it? Do we take the log from our eye?
