I grew up with any three friends and all of them. That may died and left me alone to deal with whatever. This darkness is that was left behind with james past many times in the last two weeks. I've seen all of my dad friends. I know something sinister. Not actually them but it didn't really frighten me when they appeared least not at first numb from the pain of losing my only support system and returning home today cards trying to cope with all that has happened. It's slowly tearing away at my sanity. To make matters worse. My home life is ideal. My parents are too caught up in that. Menial lives and addictions to care about what i'm going through if i'm being completely honest. They've never cared whether or not i'm even here started before. I even made it back to descartes long winding stretch of highway when she appeared sitting in the passenger seat. Didn't scare me like you'd think she was just suddenly but in my mind i felt like she'd been there since i departed the hospital. So it was always beautiful but inde- she hates me to be the beautiful thing i've ever seen as she just sat there looking ahead as if enjoying the ride back home. I didn't acknowledge either. Not that i was afraid but more that the peacefulness of the moment was breathtaking. When i didn't want it to end when i stopped the car at her apartment complex and opened the door to get out she was gone after attending. I always felt as if i wasn't alone. I would see. James sarah jeremy. I'm brenda run throughout the day. They never spoke to me but almost always around james be on my couch watching. Tv or walking down the sidewalk on the opposite side of the road. Sarabi sitting at the table with me the local coffee shop. Jeremy and brenda were always together when i saw them once. They sat in a car next to me at a red light chatting as if their lives have never even skipped a beat so she can see that i. That was nothing to fit. My deceased friend seem to be at peace with continued to spend time doing the things they done before they even. Charley took the following me around. They after i sat with sarah in the coffee shop charlie showed up on my front porch and hasn't left my side since it was his presence. That clued me into the fact that these apparitions thought to be my friends not want. They seem anytime one of them would show up. While child was at my side. The hair on the back of his neck would stand on end and he will growl until they were out of the first moments. I truly became frightened by them. I awoke to what sounded like a rabid dog outside my bedroom window when townside shoddy was barking madly at all of my friends as they walked away from the house. Heading into the woods. Matt martin was an gave me the awareness i needed to realize that things are changing which made my stomach wrenching fair. From that point on. I became exceedingly aware of the terrible things happening in descartes strange deaths and suicides with going on noticed getting no more attention from authorities than any normal death and every night the images of each death haunting my dreams. I wash myself choke old. Mrs kennedy death a felony stems of at prize roses shoving them down. I saw myself holding the faces of the fourteen year old spencer twins in that cereal milk at that breakfast table in a dream i watched idly as i put a vat of liquid nitrogen over the top of mr francis. The high school chemistry teachers had crystallizing his face into a frozen depiction of horror. Tommy in just in both sunday. Schoolteachers and active volunteers in the community were found one sunday afternoon. When they didn't show up a chip in my dream. I remember hanging in a closet with one of justin's ties after stabbing her husband. Multiple times in the is with a fun dutiful slowly but surely my time was die. Not only everyone dying in horrible ways. And i dreamt i killa seemed to be the only person who realized the debts restrain each day brought on you picture in the bitch. Recession of the times. I became more and more agitated with my surroundings sitting my dad friends wandering around town as if they were still living. Was starting to truly terrify me and the fairly grew stronger as i began. Hearing the whispers voices. I did not know sometimes words. I did not understand constantly tearing my sanity spiraling into an abyss of combination. Fear us the fifth day. After returning to descartes's i went to bed around nine pm.

Whatever it takes to look others in the eye and rebuild our community and our humanity as a husband and father. I also wanna stop spending so much time. Looking at a screen and reacting in ways that are inconsistent with who i am and more importantly who i strive to be as christian while social media has proved a useful vehicle for sharing information quickly. I have concluded that it does more harm than good to individuals and society alike. It tips us to be reactive and feeds the worst of our human tendency to respond in anger. Rather than to stop and think before communicating the result is more verbal combat unless deliberative thought all with language. We often whitten us. While looking someone in the i i have been guilty of this recently and i haven't always been proud of my language. It reduces the value of communication to statements graded by lights or being ratio d- or other mechanisms that don't reflect real human response or quality of thought. It makes it difficult to ascertain the truth about the mini difficult topics with which we all wrestle. We have replaced ernest truth seeking with trial by retweet. Meanwhile those who may consequential decisions such as issues involved impeachment covert and election. Fraud often do so based on assertions that are difficult to confirm or deny it has politicized communication to an unhealthy level widen divisions rather than bridge them and fed the temptation to call for censorship of us.

There will be a new third party because about access. i wouldn't suspect but The republicans are probably gonna wander for a while The president has has really alienated people from the party. The suburban upper income white college educated voters who would normally vote republican are drifting away at alarming rates. Blue collar workers are coming in quickly. hispanic and black voters are coming in slowly. But they're coming. We're seeing a great realignment happened. That's part of what's going on right now. Is it is destabilizing and frustrating and and discombobulating and you've got a old allies or now opponents friends now he'd each other. It's sad that politics are to the way of people's lives. It should be such a small sphere at our lives and has become disproportionate as people trade religion for politics but the bottom line of the industry. I don't think the president gets impeached. I don't think he does. I mean he's gonna get impeached. He's just not going to get convicted. I don't two thirds of the senate to do it. I don't think there are going to be enough. Republicans who will go along with it. Which kind of opens things for the president It because it. He becomes the only person impeach twice in a single term. He will get more members of his own party voting against him than any other president including bill clinton he will liz cheney the number three in the house will be the highest ranking member of a party to vote to impeach the leader of her party. And then you're going to get the squabbling and this is the other thing that i find very fascinating. The squabbling is you're going to have a bunch of people who support donald trump looking for leader because it is increasingly obvious to a lot of people other the most diehard trump supporters that. He's kind of damaged goods at this point so do his supporters. Were not the diehard cult personality supporters do that go with don jr. go with their trump to the go with josh hawley to the cruise.

Where do these people go or do they just stay home and say pocket on all your houses i've done and a lot of them will and and you know there are some members of the republican party who are now talking about rose bushes.

You gotta prudent. You've got to subtract in order to grow the coalition. that's out there. That's that's one of the things being talked about I think there are a lot of republicans prepared to wander the wilderness for a little bit. I mean you've lost.
