This past week I read the most horrific news of a man in Colorado, who posted a picture on Facebook he took holding his one year old baby girl, right before taking her life using a gun. Is there injustice, yes. Is there the constant thread of man’s inhumanity to man, Woman, Children, Animals, the Planet and eventually not just the exploration of Space, but the inevitable exploitation of it too, yes, there is and will be.
This irrationality of behavior is far from the things of God and the purpose of love, which are sadly forsaken for the cause of greed, the existence of fear and the illusion of power. For greed has never created one human being to be loved, fear has never freed one soul and lust for power pushes men ever further from the divine design of compassion.
Domestic violence and all of its devious tentacles is an insidious virus of the human condition, continuing to morph into the most hideous of all earthly creatures. More and more men are now killing the children of their victims of abuse, as a form of punishment against the Mothers. This has got to stop.
Stories come in from all over the country: In Grifton NC. A man kills his 3 yr. old son with a gun in front of the Mother wounding her soul in ways no physical blow can. In San Jose CA a man kills his three children in a fit of anger to punish the Mother. The most recent happened in Colorado with a man who shot a toddler in the head, (who incidentally had just learned how to walk) because he wanted to punish the Mother for leaving him, stating that if he can’t have her, no one else will.
Using children as weapons against Mothers is the worst demonstration of greed, existence of fear and the illusion of power a man could ever manifest. Whether it became a spontaneous last minute tactic brought on by an argument, or a nuclear option you decided to implement after feeling you’re losing the control you’ve had over the Mother for so many years.
Abusing a Woman through killing her child is the lowest level of manhood and the highest form of cowardice you will be forever known for. Deep down as a Man you know this to be true, as this contradicts and presents the complete opposite of why you are divinely blessed to be a Father. In this case opposites are not attractive.
As a man, if you’ve ever come to this level of thinking then now is the time for you to truly seek the help that is available for you. No matter where you are, please look into the National Resources listed below to find the someone to talk to in your area.
Just remember there is an answer to every anguish in your soul and a solution to every shadow in your life, but you have to fight to obtain the peace and dignity we all deserve, especially the children.
