Charles Manson, who thought he was the devil, is dead. However, the devil is not dead. Just an old man who used his life for evil. We are cautioned to speak only good of the dead, but what is there good to say about Manson? I hesitate to say , of course, I did not know him personally. Perhaps he did perform some kind acts. His public acts were otherwise. We locked him up for them and forgot him. But did the loved ones of the victims? and those who may have had some affection for him?
We should be careful in our desire not to be to bitter to recognize there is still evil in the world. Dark unknowable motivations that make an eclipse permanent of the bright sunny life.
If there is re-birth we will see his like again in another form. Don’t look for it. Plenty of sorrow here to gaze on, reflect on, and learn from.
