Don't Say I Never Gave You Nothing... VOL 2

Here ya go guys...

So eerie but at the same time fascinating...

Below are links to pictures of cities abandoned in Ukraine after the Chernobyl disaster...

To Clarify: Despite what believers in a biblical Apocolypse claim, Chernobyl translated means "black grass" not wormwood. ( "And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter." [Rev. 8:11]) So don't get sucked into the whole 'sign of the Apocalypse' thing.

I say that so I can say this: I absolutely LOVE looking at pictures from various abandoned cities throughout the fallout area. I've always wondered what the world would look like without us, and these places are prime examples.

It's so fascinating to look at these once bustling places, stopped, suspended in time, exactly as they were when they were evacuated. Bumper cars and amusement park rides sit still. Children's lesson books still on their desks at schools. An Olympic sized swimming pool sits empty (Trivia fact: That pool is featured in the video game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare)

Though the cities have been mostly looted after the fallout began to recede, the city of Pripyat is a double-edged testament to what mankind can achieve. A monument to our ability to create, and warning of our ability to destroy.

So I'm here...

Yup. I am now pretentious enough to assume that you want to read my opinions, thoughts, laments, sermons, outbursts, rants, diatribes, and many MANY other soliloquies. It took me two hours to write that.

My overall goal is to be as honest as possible. I feel like too many people try to paint this picture of themselves for others to see. What often gets lost is the soul of the person. So what I'm going to do is treat this blog like a "diary" of sorts.
