THIS IS A MOST TERRIBLE THING.

I found this story on Youtube.com  and I guess the more you look as i have been compelled to in my research, the more you find but honest to goodness when i see stuff like this I get demoralized.  So i want to ignore it or not focus on it any longer.   Fact is, I have too because these things are killing us and and the people we care about and it’s just becoming so clear that this nightmare  must stop.
