Cruelty

“People talk sometimes of a bestial cruelty, but that’s a great injustice and insult to the beasts; a beast can never be so cruel as a man, so artistically cruel.”

~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky

News of late have just simply been upsetting and are beyond my ability to comprehend.  I know that suffering is unavoidable, that unfairness exist in our lives.  But, to see human cruelty so blatantly executed and even defended leave me reeling in disbelief and anger.  Children so young were forcibly separated from their parents and put in cage-like confinements.  To even try and justify that is obscene. As a mother, as a woman…no, as a mere human being, I am beyond horrified.  Every day has been a test to the limit of our forbearance.  The decision to halt the separation provides a slight relief but I brace myself for the uncertainty of tomorrow.  Cruelty, after all, knows no bounds.
