The Physical Impossibility of Tragedy in the Mind of Someone Living in the Twenty-First Century

We’re all strong enough to endure someone else’s tragedy.

I used to add this line to every single one of the novels I wrote.

It seems to me that the most technologically advanced era in human history is one of isolation and desensitisation.

What I mean by that?

Walk into any coffee shop or bar and you’ll see folks reading news on their phone (it used to be newspapers, now it’s social media), TV preaching all sorts of tragedies, fires, deaths, and chaos.

It seems the world is busy 24/7 on destroying itself.

Of course, this is but a biased perspective thay we are being fed, but nonetheless…

It’s what we see all around us. Despair. Violence. In movies, art, video-games, news, you name it.

And whether or not it turns us into creatures of violence, I am quite certain it makes us less sensitive to our inner humanity. And that of others.

Simply put, deaths become statistics. Numbers. Meaninless information.

Everybody seems to have it really bad, and it seems impossible to find the time to relate to this on a human level.

We are so many that we feel utterly and inconsolably alone.

My own struggle is viewed in the same way, I think. People have a hard time understanding that I suffer immensely and that I need help and support.

I couldn’t go to my doctor’s appointment because I couldn’t raise the money I needed to do that.

Spending more and more time in pain, in suffering, in sadness.

Someone who can’t chew, can’t sleep because of the pain, who can’t smile because he is hideous, is suffering.

It is painful.

It is even more painful to write about it, to have to ask for help, to lose my dignity in the process.

That’s how serious this is.

I need your help. If you are willing and able to.

You can help me out here.

Any amount you see fit. Any amount at all.

The treatment costs around $8000. It needs a lot of people choosing to act and help out…

A lot of people.

I’m beginning to lose hope. It’s becoming more and more difficult…

I need your help.

I truly do.

    Dear Christian,
    I have seen your face and you are not hideous, you are created in the image and likeness of God. You are humbling your self before man and the right answer will come your way. I am praying for you in many ways. You are an amazing man with insight and vision that is worthy to be shared. Be strong as you wait for for pay pal to fill up. I will do what I can. I hope others will too.
