My fellow bloggers . . . you are amazing. To all of you who read and commented on my post, Too Much Darkness, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your comments soothed my soul.
The comments got me thinking deeper. I could feel that all of you felt as I do, hurt down to the core for what is happening in our society (terrorizing attacks), but you knew better how to move on. I was stuck in place.
My blog’s most common theme is to look in inward for answers to anything outward that is troubling. So, I asked myself, why am I so driven to find answers about the Las Vegas tragedy? Why can’t I move forward?
Hello, my name is Lori, and I’m a control freak.
I longed to help the victims. My way of helping was to solve the mystery. Figuring out why something happened is the path to finding out how to prevent it from happening again. Not to mention, the victims deserve the truth about what they experienced. Instead, they were told they didn’t see and hear what they saw and heard.
Of course, we had more terror attacks after Vegas, in different ways, but all terrorizing. Still, the other attacks were not only solved, but the perpetrators have been fully vetted, and then some. Vegas still has many missing pieces, and the news has completely gone silent on that particular attack. I eventually found some unreported answers that helped me understand the basics of what happened in Vegas, but there are still pieces missing. With introspection, I learned that even though I figured out some of what happened, it doesn’t change the past. Nor am I in control of using those answers to fix the problem. The powers-that-be are in control.Your kind comments have helped to remind me that it’s okay not to always be in control. Sometimes we’ve just gotta let things fall where they may. I can’t stop the leaves from making a mess of my yard, but it will eventually be cleared away.
On a lighter note, I took one of those ridiculous tests on facebook. If even a silly game can figure me out, I think I may be in need of some meds. Heh. The only part it got wrong is the part I crossed out.
Your mind works like the philosopher
French philosopher Descartes is considered to have founded the school of modern Western philosophy. A rational moralist who viewed ethics as a science, he is most famous for his statement, ‘I think therefore I am.’ Like Descartes,
you are quiet and contained, preferring to be alone conducting research or formulating theories than out partying. Your analytical mind loves to reason out explanations for unsolved mysteries and scientific enigmas, and your solutions are often unique and creative.
