In my last post there was some unintended but implicit suggestion that cancer is some punishment for sin. Or, that any bad thing that might befall someone is due to their bad acts. I do not believe this. I have known many great people who have suffered all sorts of catastrophes. My father died of cancer and he was a good guy. So was my great grandfather and great grandmother. I've been going through a bizarrely rough time . I wouldn't want others to ascribe divine punishment as the reason.
The post was written in the spirit of storytelling more than anything. A " can you believe this insane new development ???!!!" kind of thing.
Mulling it over, I can see how it's really an inside story that I should have only shared with those who understood enough of the complicated story behind it all. I apologize to any cancer sufferer, or anyone undergoing tragic events, who might have thought I was implying that it was in any way some form of punishment. Truly, not my intent, or my belief.
Peace, as they say.
