9 ft High and 18 ft Deep
I'm copying Shyam's comment on Luzee's article in nopkin.com with due respect and permission from him:
I feel sorry for Laden. It indeed was too bad of Mr. Idol, but why did Laden idolize him? It is only human nature to act like God when being idolized. And he forgot he was on earth when he was lifted too high by Laden's degree of words and trust.
Laden lifted him 9 feet high and he burried her 18 feet deep.
Trust, and hearts won,
To trust is good but to over trust in expectation hurts. Laden never expected her Idol to be telling lies (He was the most decent Man on God's earth after all) and Mr. Idol never wished Laden to discover the truth-- our world goes round thus. Our expectations are never met and wishes never fulfilled.
What is there in it for us to learn:
Anything can happen, world has to move on, life has to be lived for, happiness have to be reaped and stocked piled. Smiles have to be baked and spread over miles, for; all men and women deserve to be living a happy, decent, honourable and enjoyable life.
I wish both Laden and Mr. Idol the best of what a mortal life can possibly offer.
