This instinct has become so strong in me that I'm often having to check myself: "'Venegeance is mine; I will repay,' saith the L-RD." It's hard for me, because one of my strongest desires in this world is to do to child abusers exactly what they do to their victims. I honestly and truly think I could tear someone limb-from-limb if I saw them lay a hand on a child, especially one of my students (Luckily, this has not yet been put to the test. I'm a little scared of it, because I don't know for sure that I could control myself.), but that is not right; that is not holy. Sometimes it's so so hard to do the right thing.
But G-d loves all people. Yes, He especially loves children, but that does not take away from His love for their abusers, neglecters, and destroyers. G-d is amazing, unfathomable, and perfect. I, clearly, am not, and I praise Him for that. "You are so high among the highest, and I am low among the lowest, a mean thing."
Blimey Cow photo-a-day 09. Make it a milkshake, baby.
I'm a freak. I hate milkshakes. So, I walked into the 7-11 downstairs, and shook some milk. I had a rabbit in the bag on my shoulder to distract anyone who noticed.
No... I'm not crazy...
