    Well… I was surprised when, this morning, a news anchor asked George Floyd’s aunt and cousin about “forgiveness” of Derick Chauvin. How is suggesting that news, and what* would it mean? (Plus, what is an enemy?)

    I have a cousin who has been acting like my not doing legal things for my mother means[+] I haven’t forgiven my mother. My mother hasn’t planned power of attorney because she thinks it would be a decision, on her part, to die.

    Hers is the kind of god where you have to “think positive” (deny reality) e.g. in order that you have no chance of dying or being incapacitated at eighty or anytime after. She’s (we are) supposed to think she’s invincible.

    * It has tended to mean there are to be no consequences — especially with regard to those with more power, money, or privilege or higher position (which can be parents or priests). Don’t hold the responsible to any account.

    That’s different from selecting a people (a group generally) to determine are your enemy because it serves you to put or see or leave them in their “place.” Again, that differs from noting a people doing something (like enslaving).

    [+ And, then, the fact that I’ve been doing what I can for my mother at this time, who has been in an accident and an ICU, has led to me having no extra bandwidth to, for instance, focus on that cousin’s sister’s moving process.

    Meanwhile, they have both been vaccinated long ago due to being in health professions. I’m still in the midst of getting vaccine inoculations as I’m not in their fields and not a senior. But she got hers, so that’s the measuring point.]

    Brilliant and funny and made me cringe slightly because, although I am not a believer, I am guilty of occasionally feeling morally superior.
