This morning, some media outlets reported, “No known connection to terrorism or terror groups…”
Stop it. Name it. Today, it’s likely WHITE, MALE, CHRISTIAN, NRA/GUN LOVING TERRORIST with a “President” and accompanying government that is failing its people with such enormity, I don’t yet know a word appropriate for their action, inaction and crimes against humankind.
If we can’t safely enjoy a concert, peacefully protest, shop in a mall, go to see a movie, kiss our children as they go off to school without wondering, “Will they be safe?”, it’s terror, period.
Please see brief photo collection for clarity on what TERRORISTS are and are not.
Pretty clear, right?
I’m not sure about you, but I am torn up to shreds and beyond furious. I was hoping to post a gorgeous sunrise on this clear day, with peace, love and light on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Instead, I posted the day as I really see it today. While I do wish peace, love and light to you and more, the reality is, if we don’t DO something to stop this regression, peace, love and light will be snuffed out.
I posted a beautiful sunrise on this clear day, murky with sadness, anger and unwavering resolve. The truth of today is far more important than my prayers. My prayers can accompany me as I stand up with you, shoulder to shoulder, in our fight for justice.
It’s time to amplify our voices and our actions. We MUST DEMAND peace, love and light as if our lives depend on it. They do.
We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. – Elie Wiesel
