There are these two elderly women, one of whom is blind, out on the road going from car to car begging for charity. Whenever they receive some kindness they say with a smile, "God bless."

"God bless you." Is the irony lost on them? Surely it must've occurred to them that it isn't those in the air-conditioned cars and SUVs who need the blessings of an all-powerful genie.

The thing is, I don't want that god showering the well-off with gifts. Instead I want that god to have a heart and give these wizened women a decent enough life, if only for their few remaining years. I want that god to do what is right instead of sitting back and letting millions needlessly suffer. And I want that fucked-up, evil-as-hell being to beg for these two women's forgiveness for having left them disabled, homeless, and penniless.
