I've never had a child. Do you have children, Skom?

I look at these dead people and I think. How selfless they were to give their bodies to further science. They will be cut open on Tuesday. Some dumbass medical students will hack them to pieces knowing nothing about them.

It makes me sad.

Do you mind me asking what stopped you?
I have never been suicidal myself..
but have sat and tried to understand the desperation of those
thoughts w a friend.
And of those that do indeed follow through w ending their life.
We have teens in our community who have commited suicide.
I am appalled that we can't reach these kids to let them know.
Tomorrow will always arrive- no matter what- the son will shine..
I think what stopped me was that I thought about doing it, and was still trying to come up with a workable plan (when that depressed it is hard to think too) when my wife arrived home from work, and with her home, committing suicide did not seem like something I could do. Instead I told her what I had been thinking, and I suppose doing that got it out of my system for the moment, and I didn't actually ever get into a suicidal mood again.

I suspect that a lot of suicides with young people, etc. are spontaneous impulses, and they just go ahead and do it without thinking through all the ramifications. It is a horrible thing to do to your family because not only do they have to deal with your death, but they might be the one(s) to find you and that could be something so traumatic that they themselves end up with mental problems.

I was in rehab with a man whose son committed suicide, and my previous partner's cousin had a son commit suicide and she also had to go into rehab.

I find suicide as being such a waste, and before I considered it myself I would not have had any sympathy for someone doing it, but after that brief time of thinking it was a real solution, I now can understand how a person can get to that point.

It is a stupid thing to do though, because it is a long term solution to what is usually only a short term problem. When depressed we think we could never feel better again, but, at least in my case, I did get to a point where I want to live, not give up living.

Todays Prayer

"And the heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork." Dear God, I praise you, Creator of the universe, father of mankind, sustainer of all. May you be glorified through your creation and through my life. Please minister through me to the people around me. Help me to be a witness to the truth of your Word and your work. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

I am glad I checked back

No I have no children. Although I do have two God-children which is really just my youngest niece and my my nephew who is four. While I have almost zero of the responsibility I do love them something fierce

I agree, it is a very selfless thing to do. Same with organ donors who die

I look at it like this. And I know different cultures and different religion and different groups all have their own perspective on the body but to me it is basically the packaging.

Not to minimize it in any way and in some cases I can't imagine the heartbreak such as identifying a dead child at the coroners office or something like that and I know how important open caskets can be to some at funerals so I understand the body is what we connect with as human beings and recognize as our loved ones. But to me the energy or soul or spirit or essence or simply the life that resided in it, however someone views it, has left the body it just becomes lie an empty suitcase. The real important stuff is already gone

There is a type of sea crab that lives in a shell and when it gets bigger it leaves its old shell behind and finds a new, bigger one to live in. It has no sentimental attachment to the old shell as it simply housed the crab

Don't get me wrong, I understand what you feel about the bodies that were once people just getting cut up like they were nothing as far as the seemingly indifference to life and it can be unsettling. I remember not long ago reading about two bodies found dead in an abandoned drug house that had been there for months that someone simply threw an old mattress over and left there to decompose. Nobody cared who they were. Maybe nobody was even looking for them. They were not identified. and I thought to myself "wow, life just means nothing to some people where you would cover up people the same way someone might garbage"

But in the cases of cadavers for science I feel like it is an amazing thing that even in death this person, whoever they were, is still giving back. From their death they are giving us the chance to use what used to house their essence so maybe down the line we can save lives

I think it is pretty cool. But I admit, it would be very hard not to wonder the back-story of each body just being tore up. Were they loved? Were they missed? Were they good people? Does anybody appreciate the gift they just gave?

It is tough stuff my friend

I am not gonna get into the whole higher power thing but i will just say life doesn't give us all the answers we want. But it is very human to still ask the questions

(T) Peace

The Treasure Within You

Jer 1-3, Matt 27:1-10, Ps 55:1-11, Pr 8:17-18

'We have this treasure in earthen vessels...' 2 Corinthians 4:7

God has given you talents and He wants you to use them. They may lie dormant under layers of failure, fear or low self-esteem. You may be aware of them, yet not know how to put them to work. Maybe you've been going from relationship to relationship hoping to find someone who will acknowledge what's within you and draw it out. If so, read this:'But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.' Only the God who placed your talents within you knows where they're hidden and how to release them. Delayed destiny is the devil's delight. By not allowing God to develop your talents you play into satan's hands, living far below your potential. The fact is; you have so much treasure buried within you that the enemy is out to steal it. You never have to wonder about satan's motives. Jesus said he comes '...to steal, kill and destroy...'(John 10:10) You don't try to rob somebody unless they have something worth taking, right? Your talents may be raw and undeveloped, or buried under years of self-doubt, unconfessed sin, bad habits, regret and despair. But God can take something that looks like nothing, and create something wonderful with it. Just think: He made the Earth from nothing-so imagine what He can do when He has something to start with! Today pray,'Father, help me to recognise and maximise the talents You have placed within me, and use them for Your glory.' That's a prayer God will answer!

You mock this fact and think you are being funny -
all the while trying so desperatly to think yourself

You didn't have much to offer to Skom's ridiculouness last

You are discriminating against messy people. I've volunteered to help messy people in the past and they suffer a great deal having to wade through their mess all day long, it's very upsetting for them, being a mess all the time. How can you be so insensitive and cruel. You should be ashamed of yourself thinking you are so perfect and coming here looking down your warty nose on everyone. I told you, I'm not into women, stop obsessing over me, find someone who will be interested in you.

That's perfectly fine.
By the way, tape as a recording and storage medium is pretty much a thing of the past now, like film and vinyl.
You are quite uninformed.

While anachronistic, all those media are still being produced and used and in many industries the preffered media.

Who knows if it's even true.

He admits to it.. but who can really tell?

If it is true..He has alot of nerve being as pompus
as he is..
You would think humility would follow incarceration??

Then claim Jesus as your savior..and still be a pompus son
of a gun??

It doesn't add up for me...
Doesn't need to..really.

You clearly do have a problem with messy people, one only needs to read your discriminatory and bigoted post to Skom to see that.
Teddy labels Skom so where is his self righteous lecture. You mock me and many others constantly, even in this post accusing me of mocking people whilst mocking me after a post mocking Skom you little hypocritical mocking bird.
You have no clue who I am but it doesn't seem to stop you accusing me of cyber sex and inventing imaginary children and accusing me of being a neglectful mother to my imaginary invented children and accusing me of not living in Australia just because you're really really dumb.
Was i supposed to offer something to Skom's 'ridiculousness' as you mockingly call it? If so, can you enlighten me?
What's a wingman? Do I need a penis for that? Because I don't have one. Yes, I'm well aware of how pathetic you are, you don't have to keep stressing the point, you shouldn't mock yourself like that, it's not healthy.
