Am-I-my-brother's-keeper

“I am really moved and motivated by things that occur that are unjust. I’ve always hated people trampling on other people. I was in quandary, a philosophical quandary, because I tought, if I’m not my brother’s keeper, who am I? Where does my life end and my sense of responsibility for other lives begin?”  Listen to Me Marlon (2015) dir. Stevan Riley

“To run with the wolf was to run in the shadows, the dark ray of life, survival and instinct. A fierceness that was both proud and lonely, a tearing, a howling, a hunger and thirst. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst. A strength that would die fighting, kicking, screaming, that wouldn’t stop until the last breath had been wrung from its body. The will to take one’s place in the world. To say ‘I am here.’ To say 'I am.”

Yes, I am my brother’s keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe to myself. What would you think of me if I were capable of seating myself at a table and gorging myself with food and saw about me the children of my fellow beings starving to death?

..They gave up the world for each other.

Galatians directly emphasizes that we as humans are fundamentally free, but that we have a responsibility to use that freedom to care for our fellows. 1 Corinthians says the same. When Cain murders Abel, he denies knowing Abel’s whereabouts to God, dismissively asking “am I my brother’s keeper?” Much of the rest of the Bible directly rebukes this sentiment, saying that yes, we are our brothers’ keepers, and we have a duty to care for them. As Debs once expressed, this is a fundamentally socialist principle.

10x23 “Brother’s Keeper”
“Take these. And one day, when you find your way back, let these be your guide. They can help you remember what it was to be good, what it was to love.”

These photographs have been an integral part of the season. They showed up when Sam was trying to cure Dean from being a demon, Dean held onto them after Sam and Cas had cured him and their importance and value was even more highlighted when the Stynes were about to birn them, destroy that last symbol for family. Before the season had started I had posted a dream scenario of mine in which ary is the only one to get through to Dean and get him to stop. And what we got in the finale came mightily close. The same way that Sam reminded Crowley of his true nature one episode prior, here he reminded Dean of who he truly is and what has always been his most beautiful asset: his heart and his immeasuarble ability to love. By showing Dean the pictures of him and Mary he reminded him not only of family,of the small boy who had to grow up way too fast, but most of all he reminded Dean of love and how it feels to be loved and to love in return and in particular how special a mother’s love is (and this was brilliantly executed and contrasted wih Crowley and Rowena and how Crowley had to grow up with no love at all). I love how in the end here, Sam provided the tools for Dean to remember love, to listen to his heart, how Mary was the one to get through to him - when without saying a word , but just by being there - and how in the end it was Dean, supported by the ones who love him, who saved himself. Even if only for a short while…

“The Warrior of the Light is a believer.
Because he believes in miracles, miracles begin to happen. Because he is sure that his thoughts can change his life, his life begins to change. Because he is certain that he will find love, love appears.”  
 

And by scared I mean scared of myself that I will come off as rude or lead him on or just be ugly and mean and not talk to him like he is my brother and I am my brothers keeper but like how do I even
Just gotta be even more straightforward? lol I dunno scared

The only thing I am disappointed about is the fact that Dean isn’t floating in space right now. Like can you imagine Dean and his rage floating in space?

  •  Punching stars
  •  Suntanning on the sun. I mean he can’t be killed right? He’d sit on it on a lounge chair with one of those reflectors and sunglasses. 
  • He’d write stupid shit on Mars and make astronauts think life is on it. Lets be honest, Dean is the little shit to do that. 
  • He’d also be a super hero and destroy meteors coming to earth.
  • We’d see Dean on TV because they got pictures of a man floating in space.

Like come on, give me space Dean. 

Genesis 4:8-16

“Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let us go out to the field.” And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him. 

Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?

And the LORD said, "what have you done? Listen; your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground! And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 

When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and wanderer on the earth." 

Cain said to the LORD, "My punishment is greater than I can bear! 

Today you have driven me away from the soil, and I shall be hidden from your face; I shall be a fugitive and wanderer of the earth, and anyone who meets me may kill me." 

Then the LORD said to him, "Not so! Whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.” And the LORD put a mark on Cain, so that no one who came upon him would kill him. 

Then Cain went away from the presence of the LORD, and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.“
