'THIS WEEK' is a very melodramatic post that I wrote over the last few days.
This week I heard reports that a vulnerable young woman pregnant through rape was incarcerated and cut open to deliver a baby who was born far too soon to be ready for this world. In Ireland. In 2014.
This week I read about yet more women and children being killed in Gaza by Israeli bombs, and other women and children being buried alive in Iraq.
This week an American journalist was brutally decapitated in cold blood and filmed for social media to send a chilling message to the world.
This week I heard a Palestinian man say on the BBC News that alleged informers should be burned alive.
This week I read about fear and death stalking West Africa as more and more people die from the ravages of Ebola.
This week eminent scientist Richard Dawkins suggested on Twitter that babies with Downs Syndrome should be aborted.
This week I heard about violent riots in the US after the shooting dead of an unarmed black teenager by police.
And I wondered if we have progressed at all as a species in the past 2000 years?
How is it that power is more addictive than kindness?
Money more seductive than love?
Control more desirable than cooperation?
And innocent babies grow up to be cruel sadistic killers?
This week I felt ashamed to be human.
