I'm not sure which one of these is easiest to accept. I guess neither is easy to accept because it doesn't appear we could do anything about either issue.
I don't think those options are mutually exclusive. Of late, I'm begining to believe that there are evil people in the world. It is not a nice thought, but there is alot that goes on that I don't find nice. Combine evil with the natural drive to avoid personal responsibility that is abundant these days, and some sickening scenerios develop.
I have the same reservations regarding children. As my first is impending, I have questioned what I'm doing. But we have to take risks, don't we?
