People talk. People judge. People laugh. and laugh. About disturbing things, sad things, very sad things.
We can talk about anything now. Broach any topic. Break all the taboos.
But we can’t cry. We can’t sorrow. To say, “that is sad. I am so sorry.”
Sometimes, in conversations, especially when you hear about the ways people have used sex…. we all have to laugh, look mildly shocked, say, “hey, if that is what they wanted…” But no. All I really want to do is cry.
So, in our culture, we can laugh at them. But we can’t cry for them. This is a strange world. We need….Middle Earth.
“I will not say, do not weep, for not all tears are evil.”
