Road to Indifference

To erase his name from the polls of humanity will take time. To become indifferent will take time, but that’s what it takes because the opposite of love is not hate. The opposite of love is indifference. I want to feel the opposite of love.

I am not there yet. Hearing the news last night, what did you think and feel? For me, it was like chugging an emotion cocktail comprising shock and elation and fright in one bad gulp.

This morning I’m daunted. For days to come a face will be broadcast and film clips aired that spark memory of evil. It is hard hard hard not to hate.

Indifference. Find me.
