What's on my mind...

  • My neighbor killed himself yesterday. He was in his 40s, had 3 kids, seemingly good stable job. I don't know the details but I'm just... out of it right now. I don't get it. I wasn't close to him but almost once a day he'd be outside and would wave at me as I drove by. He also signed my nomination papers and put up one of my campaign signs. It's confusing in so many ways. It makes me understand why people believe in religion because I can see how it would be comforting in these situations.
  • Speaking of religion, I watched JCTV tonight which is a station we just started getting about a month ago (along with 10 other religious channels). JCTV is a Christian music and extreme sports channel. Most of the music is metalcore even death metal. These bands are like Slayer heavy. I don't get it. Most of them say nothing about Christianity, so why are they Christian rock? All I've figured out is that Christian youth are fuckin' PISSED.
  • It's 2:03AM and I have to be up at 7. Fuck me.

2 Timothy 1:8-9: "Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began...."

That's sad and shocking. And not easily understood. Campaign signs? What are you up to?
