Anything Could Happen...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Today, I read something disturbing.  It was an article about euthanizing... autistic children, Alzheimer patients.  This is in another country; I forget which country... doesn't matter, because 'it's out there now'... it makes me wonder how many countries will think about it.

I've had a worry in the back of my mind about such as this.  I actually... read it today.  It may become reality now.  This is how the world can 'rid itself' of people who 'don't matter'... make room for the strong.

Kill grandma, grandpa off.  Get rid of the children that have special needs.  We know they are just taking up room the stronger people need... no one wants to take care of these people.  They drain our resources, take up our time, worry us to death... too much work.

Too many people in the world today.  Think of how much room there would be... if just these people were taken out of it.  Do you ever fear, worry about such things?

Homeless people, stray dogs, cats, animals... anything that moves, isn't an important part of our society.  Only wildlife would be left... people 'who mattered'... and their current pets.

I worry, wonder, think constantly.  It's my nature... I study constantly, the things around me.  I think things others say they never thought of.  I don't know why, but, I do.

I remember watching a movie when very young.  It was to do with feeding the masses of people.  Too many people, not enough food.  They came up with crackers, 'wafers'... for people to eat.  They were made from the people that weren't needed in the world.  They became food for the strong.

I wish I could remember the name of the movie ... I wish I could see that movie again.  I remember thinking many years ago... that it could really happen one day.  Isn't it amazing how people predict the future?

Sometimes... I've felt I could... things happen 'now'... that I thought years ago ... 'could happen'.  I didn't want to keep thinking about them... I didn't want them to happen.  I know the little I've thought about... in no way compare with people who study, predict in a sophisticated way.  

When I have 'crazy' ideas regarding the future... I think to myself that ... 'that's bound to happen one day'... it can't help but, to.  I remember being very young... thinking that one day 'air might be sold'.... wouldn't it be something if water would be sold?

Sure enough... we buy tons of water, lots of air.  There are some who remember how 'shocking' it was when water, air were first sold.  We knew when that happened... 'anything could happen'.

Remember when people thought, 'there's no way I'm going to buy bottled water'.  Now ... it's a status symbol... 'you are somebody' when you walk, drive around with a pretty labeled bottle of water.  The prettier the label... the 'better the water'.  Our minds are amazing.....

These are some thoughts I had on my mind today.  I thought I would share them with you.  I'm thinking ... anything could happen.

  1. I remember when water and air was free!! I think one reason people started buying water is because of the chemicals they have to put in what I call "town water" so it would be safe to drink or to use for cooking. I have also seen places you had to pay for air to go in your car tire! Now that is pathetic! Pay for air???? What is up with that? Yep! I remember back when...... Love, Ms. Nancy
