the world does not abide human abstracts

Justice.  This term is not aplicable to the world as an entity.  It is an abstract human concept that differs in meaning from human to human.  So why do I still curse the lack of Justice in the world when horrible shit happens to wonderful people?  And thier babies.

There are not enough tears in my body if I cried out all my blood.

First it was Jen.  They told her she couldn't have children.  So when she and her husband got pregnant while using birth control, they felt doubly blessed.  Baby Michael is an adoreable, sweet, smart child (and I generally don't like children).  Then a couple years later, she got pregnant again.  Sadly, she miscarried.  It was a painful time to say the least.  Recently they were pregnant again.  She carried past the most dangerous miscarriage time.  But then the real tragedy struck.  During a routine ultrasound, they discovered anencephaly.  The baby had not grown a brain.  A condition 100% fatal.  I don't want to get into details here, butit has been tragic for many people.  These are some of the best people I know.  These people should raise children.  And I grieve with them.

Last night I got a phone call.  I had been having a pretty good day.  It was a friend calling on behalf of another friend calling on behalf of another friend.  Another couple who were thrilled to bring a child into the world had delivered about 2 months premie.  The baby has been in the hospital for weeks in an incubator.  The father has had a cold and couldn't even go in the same room with his son.  Last night they found a tumor next to the baby's brain stem.  The chances for his survival are minimal.  I grieve with them.

I don't care what religion you are, this is bullshit.  There is no excuse or reason for these things to happen.  If this is part of your god's plan, then that plan needs serious fucking revision!  I am so angry and so sad and so helpless.  If I had religion, this would be enough to make me lose faith.

And today I have to learn more about how humans fuck each other over, and over, and over.  And I don't want to go.  I want to stay home and cry and pray to all the gods of all religions for my friends' child.

I am so sorry to hear about your friend's baby, that is just awful. I'm praying (or whatever, I'm not even sure what it is) for them.

xo
Send whatever you've got, prayer or otherwise.
Any religion that attempted to give answers right now I'd kick in the teeth.
....oh. Oh crap. Is that... who I think it might be?

::hugs::
Checked my email. :( Excuse me while I go scream.
Ugh - that royally sucks. So much hurt going around lately in that department.

I'll be putting out the good vibes for them
Thanks. They need it.
So much grief these days...so much. We're due for one heck of a happy upswing, I hope.
*sends prayers and sympathy*
Thank you.
