    Not really. It seems the bad guys keep on truckin.


    It is something I like to see happen though, when it does happen. But it happens rarely, which makes seeing it happen twice as sweet

    I just don't know what I did that brought me a 22 year old autistic son still in diapers.....must've been rotten in a past life. Also, what did he do to deserve it?

    One of the reasons I don't like the idea of Karma. I don't think I would wish such a fate as you two have on anybody

    I think these disabled children are given to people who are special. The late Dale Evans of "Queen of the West" fame wrote a very moving book about these children after she and Roy Rogers had a disabled child. It was titled Angels Unaware.

    I think that what goes around comes around happens to people who have committed evil deeds against others - not because they led some crappy previous life.

    in so far as if you do good, good usually is returned and vice versa

    i lost my brother this year to brain cancer. he had mild mental retardation. he never did a mean or dishonest thing in his life. and that is actually true, the only time he lied was when i threatened him with great physical violence. of course my mom knew this and would separate us and of course as happened every time, he would spill the beans and i would be threatened with great punishment if retaliated. i was an asshole to him as a kid.

    he's dead. karma...?

    Real Karma, as in Hinduism and Buddism?

    No.

    Social 'karma' where people remember our actions in the past and acts accordingly?

    Yes.
