The words just won't come after having seen yet another news report of this nature:
- I-285 West Reopens At Spaghetti Junction; Dekalb County, Georgia; Posted 4:47 pm EDT, Updated 5:22 pm EDT, May 19, 2008
Somehow unexplainedly to these Fingertips through the Tears, this, just the very latest this second of similar pieces echoing across our Country, symbolizes all that is wrong in our World..
Traveled over to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC), to see what, if anything more, they had to add to WSBTV's short blurb, and things got just that much worse.. There, right below their own story of the Spaghetti Junction overpass suicide jumper, is a teaser for an article on.......
Taking tourist bus tours to view the destroyed Lives of others in the form of their foreclosed homes:
- Bus tour gives people look at foreclosed houses; Kevin Duffy; The Atlanta Journal-Constitution; Published 05/19/08..
The white shuttle bus came to a stop and Damon Borozny joked to the passengers, "All right, time to scare the neighbors."
Borozny, a product manager for an office supply business, was helping lead a new kind of tour for Atlanta - the home foreclosure tour.
A dozen people paid $49, or $65 per couple, to spend five hours Sunday checking out other people's broken dreams and possibly find a deal.
One unfortunate set of people's Lives are being shattered forever because of endlessly skyrocketing food and fuel prices even as these other wonderful folks are trading humorous barbs over the same while carelessly rummaging where tiny feet of Hope, Love, and Joy once pitter-pattered.. Seeing that article couldn't help but bring back to Mind the similarly minded individuals who graciously provided anxious sightseeing tourists with bus tours immediately following Hurricane Katrina's deaths and devastation in New Orleans, Louisiana..
Our World just keeps sicker by the keystroke.. Predatory lending has now led to predatory sharks very publicly, visually sucking off the blood of permanently wounded homeowners..
For all we know, it was something precisely like this bloodsucking predatory entrepreneurship that was the last straw for the Spaghetti Junction suicide jumper.. Someone somewhere knows the History, the Truth behind what happened today.......
We have GOT to start coming together and support each other for everything we are..
Every Life was someone's Child once..
Every Life had a Chance once to be a productive member of our Society, of our local Communities..
Every Life has Value now in this, our Own one and only, if given a Hand back up towards that Chance..
It begins with Compassion, Human Compassion for another from deep down within our own Souls..
Cyber hugs from Talking Rock........
In my Mind's Ear, listening to.......
Against all odds
Against the grain
Love finds a way
Some people change.
Thank God for those who make it
Let them be the light.
