'after years with a crown on my head i've grown overfed, unconcerned, and
comfortably numb. kept busy indulging in the pleasures of the wealthy. (HELP! someone
make me afraid of what i've become!).'
So to start off this diary, I'm dedicating the first bit to Bekah.
What I had for lunch today: SANDWICHES.
That was for her.
I think now I'm just going to write down whatever comes to my mind; whatever I feel
So first of all, I keep starting my diaries with song lyrics/names and then I jot
down a snippet of a lyrics from the pre-written song. All of those songs I HIGHLY
recommend. I'll try and keep them somewhat.. IDK. Pleasing to hear? I listen to a lot
of stuff everyday people wouldn't care to much. Ohohoh! I LISTEN TO THE WINE OF
MUSIC. It's an aquired taste.
Earlier today I knew exactly what I was going to write down and I'm pretty sure it
was going to be good, alas, it's gone.
Random thought from Josh:
Pacifism. Does it work? Sometimes I feel like it's the way to go and that some of the
most influential people were pacifistic. (i.e. Jesus Christ, Ghandi) Yet, it just
seems like it's a no-absolute. I watched this documentary about this guy named
Dietrich Bonhoeffer awhile back. He was a pacifist for quite a long time, he lived in
Germany when it was under the rule of Hitler. Unfortunately, we all know how that all
happened. But anyways, he was completely anti-violence but he soon realized Hitler
had to be stopped so he ended up joining up with a group of people dedicated to the
assassination. They came incredibly close to killing the Führer twice but never did.
In the end Dietrich was sent to prison and killed for his involvement. But he came to
the point in his life where he realized he needed to kill one tyrant to save the life
of millions. How can you be a pacifist among such slaughter? The only answer appeared
to be assassination. Thoughts?
