The suffering of the innocent

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2018

Drop by drop, upon the heart:
This news report in the Washington Post describes the terrible suffering which can be visited upon the innocent, both here and around the world.

Within the modern American context, the details of this terrible story activate an array of themes. Included is the earlier suffering, and damage, visited upon the aggressor.

We thought this local news report was well worth considering today. We'll include the famous passage from Aeschylus, which we've been considering lately:
Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget
falls drop by drop upon the heart
until, in our own despair, against our will,
comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.
"Despite ourselves, wisdom grows." That's how we've always remembered it.

  1. Sad. But why this particular story?

    Oh, got it:
    “Martinez Torres [the perpetrator], who is originally from El Salvador, is suspected of being in the country illegally”

    There were tons of stories about the children separated from their families at the border. The issue Somerby says was not covered by MSNBC, when in reality it was, night after night.

    Even Somerby’s “tears” have an ulterior motive.

    Jackass.

  5. Hello everyone out there, I'm here to give my testimony about a herbalist doctor who helped me. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2011, I went to many hospitals to heal myself but there was no solution, so I was thinking how I can get a solution so that my body can be well. One day I was in the river thinking about where I can go to get a solution. so a lady walked towards me telling me why I'm so sad and I open everything by telling her my problem, she told me she could help me, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medicines to cure the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS and gave me your email, so I sent you an email. He told me everything I had to do and also gave me instructions to take, which I followed correctly. Before I knew what was happening after two weeks, the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS that was in my body disappeared. therefore, if you also have a broken heart and need help, you can also send an email to {oliha.miraclemedicine@gmail.com}or whatsapp him number: +2349038382931 or Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/drolihamiraclemedicine/Contact him today and he will have a testimony ... Good luck!
