Flowers for algernon seemed like an interesting book to pick for an independant study. I'll tell you, after reading a few chapters i've found that its a great read, but it makes me sick, it reminds me of all the evil in our world today. The book, as ive said, is about a retarded man age 32 who finds his way to a labratory where he stumbles upon a testing program and becomes the first human to ever gain intelligence from physical surgery. As his story progresses and he slowly begins to understand more and learn to spell and write better than he ever could have imagined another thing happens- he starts to remember his past. He starts remembering the children of his childhood, those who he always thought were his friends were really evil ittle cretins that took shots at him and demeaned him in front of everyone, they pull pranks on him, get him to do stupid things and bully him, laugh at him, set him up to look a fool.
Its valentines day and he wants to give a valentine to a pretty girl, so he asks one of the boys to write something for him (a boy he thought was his friend), he asked him to write this, and i quote from the book :
"Dear harriet, i think you are the most pretties girl in the world. i like you very much and i love you. i want you to be my valentine, your friend, charlie gordan."
Thats what he wrote, god i feel like im giving a book reveiw here, but it just makes me mad; what the boy chose to wrote was nothing like what charlie wrote, the boy wrote something sick and the next day the girls brothers beat him senseless and he was moved to another school. All this kid wanted was to give this girl a valentine, not justa valentine but his own gold locket and these mean, evil little children betrayed him. Yes i realize they arent real but to hell they are, some people are just sick in the head, mentally retarded children have got to have the purest minds, always trying their best to be nice and make friends, but then evil little bastards like that come along and ruin peoples lives. Still not convinced that it could be YOUR child whos an evil little shit? my girlfriend: her aunt karen is a great woman and she looks after her, but karen's SON is another story. Hes mentally insane and no one knew until just a month ago when he kidnapped my darling gena and tied her and threatened to rape her. At this stage in her life she doesnt need that, she is only 16 and already been raped, my advice to anyone and everyone, NEVER live in london england EVER. You're children will die or be raped or beaten up or mugged or get into drugs or some weird shit like that. The point of all that? You're kid could be a serious health hazard of a mental case and you wouldnt know, gena used to look up to him.
And its not just her cousin; i mentioned before she was raped, what i didnt mention yet is how people take that information, of course when her insane cousin heard she was raped he shouted it to the neibhorhood, now all her neibhors know. Even the sick little fuckers with shit in their heads know, evil pricks, let me explain: you would think, raped or not, that you should be able to just walk to the store and back safely and without ridicule correct? Well geuse what? People are evil shits. My gena walked to the store one day, sick men in england, they pointed at her and lughed, said "look theres that girl! she just LOVES being raped" they actually said that, if it wasnt for her if i saw them id knife the sons of whored in the kidney and make them feel how she did (metaphoricly) (i have to say metaphoricly because NO, i wouldnt EVER do that.) (no) (for sure not) but yes they said that, thats how evil we are as a society, we ridicule people for being born with birth defects and being raped, as if it werent bad enough already, dont get me wrong, there are things to make fun of people for, for being a slut, for doing drugs, for doing other stupid stuff like that, thats all good to make fun of, makes people think about their actions, but when its not your actions that make you what you are and people make fun of you for it they deserve to be stabbed in the heart (metaphoricly) ESPECIALLY something like being raped or retarded, people just make me sick, so if your reading this and you beleive in god (i dont) (because this world is filled with too many evil people for there to be a god) (the first time i ever went to church a few months ago i prayed gena would be safe, not an hour later she was raped) well if you beleive and you say things like that you can be SURE you are going to burn in hell like you deserve, so dont be an evil mother fucker and be nice to people, thats the point, you dont have to spend hours talking to your retarded neibhor but at least have the courtasy to treat them well.
