What am I supposed to do? What am I supposed to say? A friend is struggling through barbaric treatments for a real shitty cruel disease, and he fears his mortality may be just around the corner. It is so frustrating, because here I am, another mortal powerless human with my own set of responsibilities/issues to contend with, and how can I even help the poor bloke? I guess I can try my best to be there for him, but do I really wanna see him all f**ked up, or can he even stand being seen all messed up like that? He's tired, in pain, and feels defeated he says. I can't blame him. He's even offering me some of his stuff, just in case he doesn't survive and has to go to the next dimension. To hear words like that is quite jolting. I know we are supposed to die, but to hear a bud at such a young age even discussing it like this so personally really jabs at my soul. I am at a loss at this point. All I can do is pray. Will you pray with me please? I'm so sorry, so very sorry really. He looks quite good despite all he's been through. I'm trying to offer some sort of hope, but what do I know? I'm so confused, and any advice/encouragement at this point would help tremendously.
Not to be outdone in the depressing department is Milk, a good but ultimately heartbreaking film. The cast is superb, and I sure as hell had no idea all that political garbage like PROP 6 in California even went on 30 years ago! WOW! I've heard of Anita Bryant in jokes, but I had no idea this maniacal bigoted bitch was even a political force back then like this! YIKES! Funny how three decades later, we're still debating this crap all over again! WE NEED HARVEY NOW! Harvey's murder was a big loss indeed. A politically-savvy and charming man was sadly gunned down in cold blood. A real shame. Why does life have to be so damn cruel at times?
Anita, this is for you. LOLOLOL!
