A lot has happened in the last 24 hours.
It’s been bugging me because I’ve been having feelings like I did on 9/11.
I’m saddened by what has been happening. Sad for family and friends who are now thrown into the dark abyss of uncertainty and grief that comes from being defenseless to help someone they love.
I’m sad….but I am also angry. Intensely Angry.
I read Oswalt Patton’s FB post. He and I are of the same mind on this, and I agree that the good humans will always outnumber the bad.
Every human life is precious. Friend or Enemy. Sometimes “The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few…or the one” to quote Captain Spock….and lives need to be taken to ensure a greater peace. I understand this…agree with it when it is necessary.
I’m growing increasingly tired of turning on the TV and seeing such a lack of justice in the world.
I hate a person who employs force and violence where none is warranted.
I hate a person who is unable to effectively make others see their point of view and uses fear and terror to force their will on others.
I hate that I am coming to terms with the idea that my children will probably not be able to enjoy some of the freedom I do today….in the name of keeping them from being murdered simply because they were born in The United States.
I hate the fact that I have to continually remind myself every day that what Mr. Patton wrote is true and that there is good in the world still.
I am an idealist, I understand that.
Change will happen whether I want it to or not. My life has shown me that Fate puts you where she wants you…and you have to do what you are able…in the time you are given.
Give second chances when they are needed. Forgive debts and grudges. Listen for people who are asking for help and lend whatever strength you are able, to their fight.
Because if you miss those signs, sometimes there is no U-Turn.
Karma and I get along for a reason….She and I both hate cowards.
