Anything Could Happen…

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee


Today, I read something disturbing.  It was an article about euthanizing… autistic children, Alzheimer patients.  This is in another country; I forget which country… doesn’t matter, because ‘it’s out there now’… it makes me wonder how many countries will think about it.


I’ve had a worry in the back of my mind about such as this.  I actually… read it today.  It may become reality now.  This is how the world can ‘rid itself’ of people who ‘don’t matter’… make room for the strong.


Kill grandma, grandpa off.  Get rid of the children that have special needs.  We know they are just taking up room the stronger people need… no one wants to take care of these people.  They drain our resources, take up our time, worry us to death… too much work.


Too many people in the world today.  Think of how much room there would be… if just these people were taken out of it.  Do you ever fear, worry about such things?


Homeless people, stray dogs, cats, animals… anything that moves, isn’t an important part of our society.  Only wildlife would be left… people ‘who mattered’… and their current pets.


I worry, wonder, think constantly.  It’s my nature… I study constantly, the things around me.  I think things others say they never thought of.  I don’t know why, but, I do.


I remember watching a movie when very young.  It was to do with feeding the masses of people.  Too many people, not enough food.  They came up with crackers, ‘wafers’… for people to eat.  They were made from the people that weren’t needed in the world.  They became food for the strong.


I wish I could remember the name of the movie … I wish I could see that movie again.  I remember thinking many years ago… that it could really happen one day.  Isn’t it amazing how people predict the future?


Sometimes… I’ve felt I could… things happen ‘now’… that I thought years ago … ‘could happen’.  I didn’t want to keep thinking about them… I didn’t want them to happen.  I know the little I’ve thought about… in no way compare with people who study, predict in a sophisticated way.


When I have ‘crazy’ ideas regarding the future… I think to myself that … ‘that’s bound to happen one day’… it can’t help but, to.  I remember being very young… thinking that one day ‘air might be sold’…. wouldn’t it be something if water would be sold?


Sure enough… we buy tons of water, lots of air.  There are some who remember how ‘shocking’ it was when water, air were first sold.  We knew when that happened… ‘anything could happen’.


Remember when people thought, ‘there’s no way I’m going to buy bottled water’.  Now … it’s a status symbol… ‘you are somebody’ when you walk, drive around with a pretty labeled bottle of water.  The prettier the label… the ‘better the water’.  Our minds are amazing…..


These are some thoughts I had on my mind today.  I thought I would share them with you.  I’m thinking … anything could happen.

  1. Hi hun! 🙂

    The movie was Soylent Green and I remember it welll!!!


    I too worry about the future.

    I particularly remember when it was discovered that one companies bottled water came from the local water supply via tap!!!

    They made loads of excuses about the water being filtered etc. but it killed the brand!!! 🙂

    Love and hugs!


    • Prenin, that’s the movie!!! I knew the color ‘green’ was a part of the title! There have been companies putting local water in the bottles… I’ve heard of it!
      :)))))) Thanks for helping me with the name of the movie…. I’m going to order it from… and watch it after all these years.

  2. People scare me. But then again, people give me hope. I’d like to think that the good in people will always be stronger than the thoughtless and the uncaring. I always hope hope hope this.

  3. I have a special needs grandbaby and he is the world to me..I’d rather die before something evil such as doing away with ‘his kind’ happens.

    • I can understand. When I read what I wrote about… my eyes couldn’t believe what they were reading. It seemed ‘once in words’… that ‘it is bound to happen’ soon. Scary…

  4. Hi Gloria! 🙂

    Thanks for popping by! 🙂

    Doug has been bad with his drinking in the past, but now he’s drinking and not eating, so he’s suffering the effects of malnutrition, but if I try to help him he feeds on the attention!

    Bad enough that he sold me to the Wards and tried to screw up my life for the journalists, he seems to forget that and expects me to support him… 😦

    Being a good guy isn’t enough around people like Doug…

    Love and hugs!


    • Prenin, isn’t that something… he still comes to you! I’ve known people just like that… they ‘forget’ they hurt you seriously… in fact, one person comes to my mind at this moment…. who did that to me many years ago. Love, Gloria
