Humor at the expense of others misfortunes and mistakes really doesn’t amuse me anymore. As I grow older, I am wiser, and it was never okay. I heard some comments, on a radio station I love listening to, about a famous entertainment family struggling with the disease of substance abuse. Yes, that’s what I just wrote, disease, because that’s what substance abuse is. It doesn’t get the sympathy that Cancer or other diseases get because quite a few people still don’t understand that it is a disease that can be terminal.
Remission you pray for, and some of us find it, but some of us succumb to it. My laughter is reserved for the moments of joy and beauty.
I just had to say this.
