Well We All Shine On...

Like the moon and the stars and the sun,
Well we all shine on,
Ev'ryone come on.

Let it be said now, that I don't believe in karma. I believe in God. However, some odd occurrences have been coming to light.

Allow me to explain.

I've spent the last 24 hours in the fog of shock and awe since I've learned of John's death. No forces at work there. He was a wonderful guy. We were just too young and too immature.

Last week I found out that my ex, the-not-so-nice one, is married, and had a stroke about 7 or 8 years ago and is disabled.

Then this weekend a friend from high school contacted me (shout out to John!). He had as much problems with the infamous Kenny as I did. We both turned out okay. Kenny, yea, well, not so much. He's a live and healthy. But, that's about it.

And, a girl who tormented me lost her legs in an accident (this one I knew of).

I feel sad for these people and the trials that these people face. And if I were a movie producer, I think that these coincidences had a Carriesque feel to them. But I assure you, I have not maimed or killed or tormented anyone. I feel bad with what they face and what they have to go through. But as John and I were talking, we have forgiven the Kenny's of this world long ago.

I'm sure that my friend John and I are not the only ones who had these experiences in childhood or high school. Please pray for these people and your own Kenny's. That they may be free from whatever is haunting them. That they may be truly happy.

Until next time.
