Life Isn’t All Sunshine And Rainbows

My grandpa suffered from alzheimers in his later years. It never really affected me since it seemed lke the funny kind of Alzheimer’s. A lot of "oh grandpa moments!" like when he can’t remember how to tie his shoes or how to use the microwave.

After a while though it started getting worse. He couldn’t recognize my voice over the phone for example. But there was one moment that made me realize how far gone my grandfather was.

He picked up a framed picture of him and my grandmother who had passed away four years prior. He stared at it blankly and I lightheartedly asked "You like that picture, eh, grandpa?"

He paused before replying "Who are these people?

I froze my grandfather couldn’t remember what his wife of fifty-four years looked like. He couldn’t remember what HE looked like.

I said "Grandpa, that’s you and grandma. Don’t you remember?

Again, he paused and then he began to cry and said choking on his tears "No, no I don’t remember! I can’t remember! Why can’t l remember?"

"It’s the Alzheimer’s, Grandpa. You’re losing your memories a-"

"Alzheimer’s I don’t care, I lived a life, I worked hard, I existed! I should know it, shouldn’t I?"

There was a long pause before he muttered "I’m scared."

"Of What?"

"I don’t want to die."

We cried for hours.

JFK’s shirt after his assassination


The only known photograph of German serial Killer Karl Denke after he hanged himself in his cell. When police searched his house they found human flesh in cured salt jars and a ledger detailing the murder of at least 42 people. He also claimed to sell human flesh at markets as pork. 1924 (article)

“The first findings made in Denke’s house during the search were bones and pieces of meat. The latter were in a salt solution found in a wooden drum. There were altogether fifteen pieces with skin. Two parts of the breast, which is strongly hairy. The torso is cut through the middle, three fingers above the navel. Its lateral limit is the front shoulder blade. In the piece of the anterior abdominal wall, the middle of the navel is visible. The remaining pieces belong to the side and back parts. The largest is about forty by twenty centimeters large. Particularly striking was a very clean anus with both buttocks.

The meat is brownish red and does not feel as if the body would have lost much blood. On the back some soft-bluish discoloration is visible as well as livor mortis, which leads to the conclusion that the disassembly of the body took place several hours after death.

There is no evidence of vital reaction of the bodies to the cuts made, which means that the latter were not made while the victims were still alive. Nevertheless some skin and muscles from the necks were missing, as well as extremities [arms and legs], head and sexual organs. Lesions could not be determined, nor the nature of death or the tool of crime.

In three medium-sized pots filled with cream sauce, some cooked meat, partially covered with skin and human hair was found. The meat was pink and soft. All pieces seemed cut from the gluteal area [buttocks]. One pot had only half a portion. Denke must have eaten the other piece short before being arrested”.

Samar Hassan, 5, screams after her parents were killed by U.S. Soldiers with the 25th Infantry Division in a shooting January 18, 2005 in Tal Afar, Iraq.

The troops fired on the Hassan family car when it unwittingly approached them during a dusk patrol in the tense northern Iraqi town. Parents Hussein and Camila Hassan were killed instantly, and a son Rakan, 11, was seriously wounded in the abdomen. Rakan, paralyzed from the waist down, was treated later in the U.S. “The family was given $7,500 in compensation by the U.S. military and eventually Rakan was transported to Boston, Mass. for intensive treatment for his wounds,” as the book’s editor’s notes reveal. “[The] effort [was] sparked by constituent mail to Sen. Kennedy (D-Mass) after the public saw Hondros’ photos.” Rakan was able to walk again and returned home, but sadly he died amidst the ongoing violence in Iraq in 2008.


Survivor of a Hutu Death Camp in Rwanda (Rwanda Genoicde)

A Hutu man at a Red Cross hospital, his face mutilated by the Hutu ‘Interahamwe’ militia, who suspected him of sympathizing with the Tutsi rebels. The animosity between the Hutu and Tutsi population groups in Rwanda had been simmering for decades. In April, the death of Hutu president Habyarimana in a plane crash near the capital of Kigali sparked murderous attacks on the Tutsi minority and Hutu moderates. The situation deteriorated further when the mainly Tutsi rebels of the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) started pushing south from their stronghold in northern Rwanda. A mass exodus of people trying to escape excessive violence was underway by July.

Iraqi Mother searching for her son after terror attack 


Frank Embree shortly before his lynching, Fayette, Missouri, 1899. He was accused of raping a 14-year-old white girl and only confessed after being whipped over 100 times

Frank Embree, in Fayette, Missouri was accused of assaulting a white girl named Miss Willie Dougherty. A mob of over a thousand people captured him, and he was taken to the scene of the crime, where he was asked to make a statement. His persistent refusal to admit his involvement angered the mob, and he was stripped of his clothing, and half-a-dozen men whipped him over and over using buggy whips. Each lash opened the skin, and the blood trickled down.

He never winced. He gazed abstractedly into the faces of the crowd, and never uttered a word. Twice he fell, either from exhaustion, or in the hope of ending his agony by breaking his neck. He was given 103 fearful lashes, and then allowed to sit down. Again he was questioned, but he still maintained his innocence.

He was made to stand up again, and he was whipped once more. Embree’s sense of feeling had returned, and he screamed for mercy.

Promising to tell all, he told the crowd that if they would not torture him any more, and would not burn him, but instead would either shoot or hang him, he would make a confession. Embree then acknowledged that he had assaulted Miss Dougherty. Without further delay, he was hanged and his lifeless, battered and bleeding body was left on display for hours


An Iraqi man comforts his 4-year-old son 

An Iraqi man comforts his 4-year-old son at a holding center for prisoners of war, in the base camp of the US Army 101st Airborne Division near An Najaf. The boy had become terrified when, according to orders, his father was hooded and handcuffed. A US soldier later severed the plastic handcuffs so that the man could comfort his child. Hoods were placed over detainees’ heads because they were quicker to apply than blindfolds. The military said the bags were used to disorient prisoners and protect their identities. It is not known what happened to the man or the boy.
