I watched Fox News this morning while getting ready for the day, and first my eye was caught by the spectator jumping over the barrier to jump into the Popemobile and I was astonished that the Pope did not even appear to notice the commotion all around him, is that what they calling being in a state of grace?
A few moments later, I see another story, about a young 18 year girl abducted after shopping in Target in Kansas. The story on Fox News gives us a chilling video replay of this young girl who walked into Target like millions of people do day after day. She went to run an errand and then she didn’t come home.
I became so enraged. I am still enraged.
What gives anyone the right to take away another human being’s right to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
Unalienable rights. Seems so simple, so direct, and our Society just can’t get it straight after all of these years.
I will pray for this family and wonder as I do, how many other families are facing similar horrors? Why is there not an answer? Why is there not some way to prevent this? Is it something we miss in the developmental stages, something that could be adjusted? Is it a byproduct of the way we live? I read about the collective consciousness theories, practices, the heralding of the Golden Age returned. I wish it would occur today, right this minute.
