A Challenge of Courage

Incest and all childhood sexual assault is wicked and evil. Call it what you will, but no person with true faith could rape a child. Why are we so dull? Why do we want to soften the blow of wickedness? Is it easier to not include evil with such acts? What else on God’s greenContinue reading “A Challenge of Courage”

~ Bloodguilt ~

I am not saying I still believe that I’m guilty of murder, but being a witness was something that moved me on, made me turn over stones, and hunt for evidence. All my life, I knew something happened in a motel room with my father and his best friend, Craig. I always assumed that they’dContinue reading “~ Bloodguilt ~”


The word means impious utterance or action concerning God or sacred things. In other words, lacking in proper respect. I have never met a pedophile that had proper respect for anything in life. And, I do mean anything, except themselves. They hold their own being in high esteem, but anything else means about nothing toContinue reading “Blasphemy”

Quote from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe a German poet, playwright and novelist, considered the greatest German literary figure of the modern era. He died in 1832.

TheContinue reading ““Few people have the imagination for reality.””

Mirror Mirror ~ Who do you influence?

Introspection — what better way to start a week. Question: Who do you influence and who influences you? Coming from a lifestyle of trauma, I didn’t believe I influenced anybody. And, I didn’t believe anyone really influenced me. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The way I saw this fallen world was that there wereContinue reading “Mirror Mirror ~ Who do you influence?”

What Trauma Is Not

It is not an ordinary hardship. It is not the loss of a good job. It is not the death of an animal. These are the ordinary human experience. I listen to the stories of people as often as I can. What I usually hear is what people do, not who they are. That’s aContinue reading “What Trauma Is Not”
