Something people do to pretend that their apathy is really concern. Also known as "I could care less what happens to you unless it affects me directly, but I don't want anyone to think I'm the craven, spineless self-absorbed weasel I really am." Mostly promised in lieu of actual help.
My grandmother's friend knows that I have a rare blood type and have only a 9% chance of finding a kidney for transplant, but instead of trying to help me avoid a lifetime of dialysis by asking her fellow churchgoers to get tested for crossmatch, she is afraid of "offending" someone by asking, and believes that sending me a worthless little card depicting a no-name saint and a promise to pray for me, ensuring me a much shorter lifespan, largely consisting of sleeping and sitting for 12 hours a week watching my blood go in and out of my body is just as good as asking for donors and that it will help me obtain a kidney. What a joke.

one day, we shall all fall, to our knees some, others to what they fear, in that moment every mind, will share, and dreams will become what we see, no power will inhibit our beleif, everything the present participle, will persist and be understood. air will breathe and fire will ignite. and then...she will be the past participle, and we will dance for eternity.
pray the opposite of high and low frequency, sound mind control.
