Death of Charles Manson – What Can One Say?

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.



About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
