What does it take to murder a person in cold blood; to look a person in the eye and end his or her life? What does it take, to stare a living, breathing human being in the eye with the intention of murder and proceed to carry out the despicable act?
What does it take to abandon your parents? To leave them in nursing homes and forget they exist; to dump them in the streets like dogs? The people who did everything they could to bring you up and raise you to be the person you are now? Or was it because they were not the parents they were supposed to be?
What does it take to betray someone? To abandon the trust of family or friend? Why was that secret not kept? Or the loyalty to one now turned to another? Why would she spend the night in the bed of her husband’s best friend?
What does it take to tell a lie? To say you didn't when you know you did? To say it was him when you know it was her? To say you don’t know when you remember it clearly? What does it take to twist the truth for your own gain?
What does it take to steal from another? To take from one their hard earned money? To reach out and grab what does not belong to you?
Now, what about you? What will it take for you to murder a person, to abandon your parents, to betray someone, to tell a lie or to steal? What would push you over the red line? Or is there no red line for you?
