Day and Night Pharmacy – Where is He?

It’s just after the festive season but I am an angry man. I feel Day and Night has not delivered the best service we’ve been proud of in the past years. I feel the religions of the world have failed to deliver the peace they preach. There’s no connection between the two but I’ve got to vent my anger at something.

I was preoccupied with an engrossing match on TV when my daughter interrupted me with an 7th year Religious Education homework question, ‘Why do many religions point to God in the sky?’.

It’s because they can’t find Him on earth’, I snapped. She laughed and probably went on to get a better answer on the internet.

We’ve gone into Syria to bomb more accurately than what our allies have been doing daily for a year… yet the target has been proliferating unabated. Where is God when all this is happening? And isn’t it a shame that spiritual institutions which are supposed to guide us to peace tend to have a plethora of leaders and followers bent on fulfilling material and bodily desires? Catholic priests have been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Before them, missionaries in Africa were known to hold the Bible in the left hand and a whip or gun in the right whilst their eyes could not escape the dark berries around them. Sooner rather than later surrounding villages had many children who could not win a game of hide and seek even on a moonless night… The Godly men were enjoying heaven on earth! So many self proclaimed ‘Moslem’ men have committed atrocities in the name of Allah for apparent rewards of martyrdom… Boko Haram men can’t wait; they just raid schools overnight and take all the girls away.So many self proclaimed ‘Moslem’ men have committed atrocities in the name of Allah for apparent rewards of martyrdom… Boko Haram men can’t wait; they just raid schools overnight and take all the girls away.

I am an angry man. I can’t write about any medicine at the moment. What we need is some holly medicine to treat these religious men (and some women) who needlessly inflict pain on fellow humans. There has to be a way of dumping bombs that do not kill and destroy but cleans the mind and soul. Has anyone seen God lately?

With cases like Donald Trump ramping up their aversion to pluralism by throwing a filthy Le Pen blanket over the peaceful Moslem and the terrorist, I see perpetual streams of blood and an ever tantalisingly slippery fish of peace.

I am too small to change the world but venting one’s anger without violence is therapeutic. I know what lies in my circle of influence: the service at Day and Night Pharmacy. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to improve our service in the New Year. Things can only get better.
