to hug a porcupine

Please read if you have some time:

Absolutely heartbreaking article. Tragic and not for the faint of heart, but gripping and real. Fairly disturbing, so don't read if you are not willing to be shaken. It is difficult to comprehend the ugliness that people are capable of and the price others pay for it. We live in a broken world and no one is innocent. Sometimes there are no answers. Can we live with that and not lose hope?

I would love to hear some of your reactions. I imagine that some will be mighty confused.

  1. ah. definitely not a pick me up. amazing couple at least. it'll be really sad if their first adopted son goes awry too...

    we hope only to be disappointed but we can't help ourselves. haha maybe i shouldn't have read it. the gloomy world only became gloomier.

  2. Please read when you have time does not = told you not to read it.

    Yeah I read it too. It was kind of depressing to see the deep depravity of this world but... at the same time it's nice to know there are people out there who try and didn't "give them back to the state" (or maybe they couldn't). Maybe it's even a reflection of how Jesus could love all the messed up people in this world and though we curse Him and set His house on fire and stuff, He still loves us.
