There it goes again… grief… the facet of life that at this juncture, I simply don’t understand. This is the third relative that has passed away, and I still don’t feel any sort of physical manifestation of pain or sorrow. It upsets me to hear my mom cry on the phone, but I don’t feel anything. Is this as abnormal as I think it is?
Simply put, the abortion controversy is not resolvable because there lacks a universal moral code of principles. The hands-off approach, that of those who preach “If you don’t believe in abortion, don’t have one” is a bust because those who are opposed to abortion are not merely expressing a personal opinion about abortion, they sincerely believe that the practice goes against universal moral principles. In addition, to claim that we should be entirely tolerant of each other’s moral opinions would be akin to insanity. Imagine if the idea of hands-off had been applied to slavery- “If you don’t believe in slavery, don’t own slaves” is by today’s social constructs an incredibly offending sentiment. Until we can all apply logic to a universal definition of morality, and from there utilize logic in all decision making processes, this issue will remain just that.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what i call a FANTASTIC night. Why did it have to be with people I haven’t seen in three years and probably won’t see for another three more?
I can’t stop tweeting, it’s terrifying.
I am so ready to put this shitty excuse for a semester behind me. Not even remotely exaggerating
Lately, it is the family’s sink, with its rotting wall and leaky pipe, that fails to get fixed. For weeks, the pipe drips through the night. Finally, Dasani is fed up. She crouches down and examines the pipe as her siblings watch. “Nobody thought about pushing it in and twisting it,” she says in her cocksure manner. A few quick jerks and she triumphs. The children squeal.
It goes unremarked that here, in this shelter with a $9 million annual budget, operated by an agency with more than 100 times those funds, the plumbing has fallen to an 11-year-old girl."
