Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

His words are indeed very wise, yet so common-sense that it always amazes me that the whole world doesn't see it, and practice it, but remains blinded by all those other things, or "compromises" that you mentioned, Beth. It makes me want to weep too.

Desmond Tutu is indeed a remarkable man. I am glad you linked to this, Beth.

Though I am not a religious person, I do enjoy reading your posts and your views on important issues, like this one. It is so comforting to know that there still are people like Desmond Tutu, speaking to people, getting heard. Thank you very much for sharing this, Beth.

I agree with Marja-Leena: it's so common-sense that is is painfully surprising how some people (a lot of people) just won't see it.

Love from Mexico.
