A true story
Once upon a time I was locked in a tin shed filled with fishing nets and corks. I was told that I was going to spend the rest of my life in that shed, and that I'd never see my parents again. It was hot and musty - the sun shone through dirty windows lighting up the dust in the air. I was terrified. When I asked what I was going to eat, I was told that I could eat the corks.
I think I was five or six years old.
I cant help but wonder who I would have been if that moment never elapsed.
I cant help but wonder what I would have to do to them in order to provoke a similar emotional response; especially now they must be in their mid 50's.
I honestly think that whatever that would be, I'd probably get some serious jail time. Especially as I think one is now a top cop, and the other a member of parliament.
So: two lessons.
One: You are what you absorb, and
Two: There is no such thing as Karma.
Although I'd like to be proven wrong on the second one.
