A Letter To Little Me

A Letter To Little Me

Dear Little Me, Today I read a letter you wrote to me so I thought I'd return the favor.  I know that you can't wait to grow up. That you think that everything will get better as you age and that nothing can stop you. That's only mostly correct. At the age of five, you've been through so much little girl. I know you're really scared of everything. Afraid to cry. Afraid to trust. Afraid to share how hurt you are. You fool everyone so well but believe me when I say this: You don't want to be that person. Open up. Share. Cry. Be happy. So much weight is on your shoulders at such a young age and it's not fair. It makes you strong though. Keep

Little Birdy

I giggled once more and let the laughter carry me away from this world. It felt good to laugh for no reason. Be happy without a trigger. It bubbled inside of me like a fizzy drink and for the first time in a long while, I felt completely happy. "You silly birdy." He said. It was good to forget about life for a while with him here. Even if he didn't share my love for life right now, it still made me high to be laughing with my best friend by my side. "I'm not silly," I said, my words slurred with uncontrolled giggles, "Just happy." I grinned and felt my mouth stretch my cheeks into a full smile. I sighed and let the laughter die, falling back

I tried

I tried to count my scars, But I couldn't tell Where one began And another ended. So I tried to count the cuts, But I couldn't, because Blood smeared across my skin, Connecting them like a thin, Red veil of pain. And so I cried. I cried a single tear, because When I need to cry, I can't. Finally, I sat down, And put pen to paper, Or fingers to keys. And tried to write my emotions. But I couldn't, because I don't know how to tell the world What I feel like, When I have no right.

Comparing Science to Religion

Comparing Science to Religion

Comparing science to religion is comparing apples to oranges.  Religion is a way of thinking and living, where science and technology are tools.  They are often pitted against each other, because one is faith based, believing without proof, and the other is fact based, believing only what can be proven.  If religion has a true rival, it should be philosophy.  Both offering moral guidance, but one with a god, the other without. You say "Where in the scientific community have we seen any real significant humanitarian movements?" and I say where would any humanitarian movement be, without science and technology.  It would be much harder to feed

One million years from now, I hope that this era will be viewed as the period when mankind abandoned superstition and, for the first time, began to see things in a realistic manner. Jeff
