I don't usually cuss on my blog, but cancer deserves all the profanity we can throw at it. There is a wonderful person dying of cancer in a house a few houses away from me and her strong, lovely sister is caring for her. I watched my mother die from cancer almost seven years ago in her 50s. I empathize with what Cynthia and her family is going through. It sucks. It sucks to watch someone you love and who has so much more life to live being taken from you by this horrible disease. It sucks to be grateful for morphine. It is hard to see life going on around you as someone you love is losing theirs.
In a world with cancer, why do we humans feel the need to wage war and cause more death and destruction. There are plenty of diseases which we have no control of which are horrific enough...why must we cause more horror? Why can't we spend the money we are currently spending on war, on a cure for cancer or food for starving children? Life is tough enough and oh so fleeting, why do we insist on making it tougher?
I want my mother back, I want Rob's mother back, I want Judi to live.
