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.

Beth, thanks for bringing this up. Examples like this of the atrociously unacceptable, outrageous, cruel and literally insanne ways that human beings can treat each other make my blood boil. So many of us are outraged by such things and sometimes the rage leads to positive actions. Still it goes on, endlessly, similar situations happening right now all over the world. Can it ever change?
