New post in BLUNT KNIFE after a long time. Just forgot about it. I'll try to update regularly in future.
Posted this story last year when I started blogging, now it has a different relevance.
1495 Medieval England
Mary Jo is merrily walking on the cobble stoned streets of London, smiling, a song on her lips, on her way to school. Suddenly a severed head oozing with blood comes rolling down, stops at her feet, she kicks the head out of her way and continues walking, now she is very angry, because there are blood stains on her shoes. She stops to wipe them off, reaches the school and screams at her teacher for giving her low grades, she thinks she deserved more.
2006 Present England
Mary Jo is merrily walking on the streets of London on her way to the dance class. Suddenly a severed head oozing with blood comes rolling down and stops at her feet. Mary Jo screams in horror and faints. Now she needs months and months of therapy to get herself back to normal life, but still can't get rid of the nightmares and wakes up screaming in the nights. Seems impossible for her to erase that incident out of her mind.
What is the difference between Mary Jo of 1495 and Mary Jo of 2006 ?
Its plain evolution
Mary Jo of 2006 cannot accept such a gruesome act of violence.
She is civilised.
People in the past had scant respect for nature, today we humans fight for the survival of spotted owl, bald eagle, We fight for the survival of the trees.
Today chopping of trees, loss of life is unacceptable.
You respect life more today
There is a biblical Tsunami and flood coming
If you are God. What would you do ?
Would you tell Noah to build an ARK ?? and tell him to save two of each species ?
No, If you are God, you would do everything in your power to stop the Tsunami and flood, stop the disaster from happening.
That makes you more kind and more compassionate than God himself
Today there is more love than there has ever been.
Today there is more kindness and compassion than there has ever been.
Today we do everything to co exist with others against all odds, unfortunately there are few who refuse be civilised and refuse to join the process of evolution. Its like the process of natural selection has rejected them.
This little uneducated girl is more conscious of environment and she is willing to listen.
