On a personal note

Reading this book, has been disturbing, to say the least.
Have I had difficulty sleeping? Yes.
Words from the book, haunt my dreams at night.

I got to hear an older interview today with the author regarding this book.
Dave made it clear that the book was, as I had suspected, a difficult one to write.

How could it not be?
It exposes the author and a reader to a world so perverse and twisted, one can hardly believe that people, alleged human beings, are capable of these attrocities, and yet, it appears they are.

But then , a passing thought, look at what people do to one another on a daily basis?
Just reading the news is enough to leave one in despair.

Look at the endless warfare, slaughter of innocent civilians, women raped and sold into prostitution, human smuggling as a global "business", the reports on tourism for pedophiles.
People gunned down, right on their own streets.

Have we as humans lost our humanity?
Have we lost our connection, to each other and to our planet?
How have so many of us let ourselves get to this level?
I fear, far to many of us have lost touch with what makes us human.
I just don't know..............
