Boondock Saints...

" We must all fear evil men...but there is another thing that we must fear most...and that is...the indifference of Good Men..."

What is it about the average man that makes them sheep...?
How can a heinous crime be committed and a multitude will stand by and ignore the crime in denial?

I found a story about a woman who was raped I will link it below. This was a story I found on an anti-islamic site. But the point of this is not really about being anti-islamist. There is a more heinous crime.

How can anyone stand by while a woman is raped? I just don't understand. How can a person stand by while a helpless person is murdered?
These are very serious questions. They deserve answers.
Recently a very good friend of mine was brutally raped, sodomized and beaten. She was fortunate that the police just happened to arrive before she was murdered by a couple of hispanic men that had just taken out a baseball bat to finish the job.

I am going to link the story of the rape by the arab man here...unfortunately you will not find a story about the poor girl I know personally who was brutally raped and beaten. This story will not appear in any newspaper or on any newshow.
Is it because her attackers were Mexican? in a border city in New Mexico? Is it because SHE is white? who knows. I wonder how many other rape and murder cases never make it into the media.

My friend was severely traumatized by the experience. and will not be able to have sex for a lng time...and even when she is healed...she may not want to.

As I was reading the article about the rape that was witnessed by several people and not reported and even worse, noone intervened on behalf of the poor woman, there was a reference to the case of the stabbing of Kitty Genovese. To quote the article..."The lack of intervention in the St. Paul case calls to mind the 1964 murder of Kitty Genovese, who was stabbed to death outside an apartment building in New York City. Although as many as a dozen people saw parts of the attack, no one stepped in or immediately called for help."
It reminded me of the opening sequence of the Boondock Saints. The priest is recalling that incident and makes a very poigniant statemnt that I quoted in the beginning of this post.

Me must fear the indifference of good men. I want all of you that read this to reflect up[on that statement because it seems the American public has become indifferent to the crimes against us.
Think about the meaning of this and how it applies to us as a society.

After some reflection and deliberation upon your part, i ask you one last thing...
Reach down inside and find the good man( or woman) in yourselves and make a point to not be indifferent. Make a stand and do what is right. Stand up for yourself the people around you and stop letting the enemy that is poised at the gates from gaining any more ground.

I am not asking anyone to be a hero...all I ask for you to be an authentic human being....
