I'm having a very, very hard time dealing with the evil that surrounds me. It has increased a hundred-fold in the past decades; most noticeably since the year 2000, it seems to have gotten worse. Much, much worse.
The city in which we live has gone down the tubes the past two years or so - crime, murder, suicides, drug dealers and increased usage (primarily meth and heroin), sex slaves/human trafficking in our city. The police department arrests them, the judges let them go and they are back on the streets and in business. If things go on like this, and if people do not start getting justice, they are going to create a vigilante society. Maybe that is what they want.
Good God, how can He allow all of this to go on? Especially when it comes to human trafficking - most the girls are young - many are little girls. Some of the adolescent girls are fed drugs while used for elite prostitution (by that I mean, the price tag on them is so steep, only the wealthy can afford them) until they get pregnant. Once the baby is delivered, it is sold to whomever for whatever nefarious purposes.
It's not going away but only getting worse. The Church which used to be a haven for us and a safe refuge, is nothing of a sort today. Our traditional chapels are full of compromisers who live with one foot in one world and the other foot in another.
There is no priest to talk to. They are all too busy running here and there.
Am I alone? Is there anyone else here that is going through something similar or maybe the same?
