My husband recently died after a long struggle with alcoholism and I am making the slow climb back to normality.
I was reading an article tonight on 'how to talk to your child about terrorism" Apparently we aren't supposed to call the people evil or bad. They are just people that do bad things. Bad things not bad people. I say "bullshit". The science behind it is that it stops children worrying about bad people coming to get them. I think maybe we say: the bad people aren't coming to 'get' you - they can't take you away with them as they don't even plan on leaving themselves in one piece - ohhh maybe not.It's all stinky.
I agree, it's completely stinky ;(
Evil people.... bad is too good a word. Anyone who covers themselves in nut and bolts and nails and then blows themselves up hoping to take 30 or 40 innocent lives with them is EVIL.
Some things - or people - defy explanation. How to explain that to us - let alone children....
