There are some things that humans do to each other that are beyond comprehension. There is no way to get your head around them. No amount of understanding or explanation will help either.
In those cell-like rooms behind that door, investigators say retired electrician Josef Fritzl imprisoned his daughter for 24 years and fathered seven children with her.
Three of the children "never saw sunlight" for years until they were freed this past weekend, they say.
Authorities said Fritzl, 73, confessed Monday to crimes that have chilled Austria and raised uncomfortable questions about how he could have deceived his neighbors and police, as well as social workers who had made repeated visits to the gray stone apartment building he owned.
One of the children died in infancy and was tossed into the furnace of the building where Fritzl lived with his family and rented the other units to relatives.
It is at times like these that what you believe it tested like never before. It is when you either believe that God is who He says He is or the whole thing is a hoax. It is a time when your faith is either your friend or foe.
Fritzl "managed to deceive everyone," including his wife, Rosemarie, who apparently was unaware of the existence of the children in the cellar, Polzer said.
The questions go over and over in your head. How could he keep her and the kids locked up for 24 years? How could his wife not know? How evil can we really be?
These times don't shake my faith as much as explain now much evil we humans are capable of carrying out. It makes it harder for me to love all God's people which is is hard enough already.
Our faith is not Real unless we accept the highs and lows of what is all around us. It is easy up on the mountain top, many times you feel like you could take on the whole world but then there are the valleys where we would all rather not go. A reflective day for sure, I am ready to move on...
