Nobody wants to admit to this, but bad things will keep on happening. Maybe that’s because it’s
all a chain, and a long time ago someone did the first bad thing, and that led someone else to do
another bad thing, and so on. You know, like that game where you whisper a sentence into
someone’s ear, and that person whispers it to someone else, and it all comes out wrong in the end.
But then again, maybe bad things happen because it’s the only way we can keep remembering
what good is supposed to look like.
