    Amazing news story

    The news, if you haven't heard it yet, is that three women, kidnapped about 10 years ago, have been found, alive, being held captive in some guys house.

    Police: No previous indication women were being held at Cleveland home


    There aren't a whole lot of details yet...

    This is awesome...I saw this on my reader this morning before I left for work. What a wonderful outcome to such a tragedy!
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I'm so glad to see they are safe. Its utterly horrific what they have gone through. Makes me sick to think about ...

    I hope they can re-integrate back into society easily, and find all the support they need.

    People will be falling over backwards to help them, which is good. But, of course, one can never really, REALLY recover from something like that.

    The things these women have suffered and what the people holding them have done makes me sick, and I cannot consionably hope for anything short of throwing the proverbial book at theperpitrators of these acts. That they are safe now is astonishing, after all of this time families must largely have assumed that the women were deceased. Having family back from essentially the dead is phenominal. But what they went through will likely haunt them for the remainder of their lives, not to mention the 6 year old child as well. I wonder if thewomen will keep in contact with one another or avoid one another after al is said and done? And all blessings be on the man who helped the first woman escape, there are still human beings in this messed up world.
