What did you expect…. the shootings in Virginia

June 14, 2017

No solution just a few words
of observation
to ponder

Early this morning we were witness to the obvious evolution of the violence seen since the November election. A man, James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, who anyone looking at him would not suspect as a deranged killer went on a shooting spree targeting Republican members of congress at a baseball practice. Hodgkinson before the practice was reported to say, “are these the Republicans or the Democrats” practicing, officials commented.

We have been witness to the many violent protest and counter protests by those that feel somehow President Trump rigged the election. Similar protesters, faces covered in black hoods, clashed with people having free speech rallies in Berkley California and Portland. With the supporters of President Trump ending up being beaten for their show of support is it any wonder that today we see the next logical step in this evolution of violence?

Sitting isolated in my apartment
watching video of the violent protests in the middle east
mirroring what we witness across America today
is it any wonder
that some of these disturbed losers
have picked up their guns?

    Whatever the reason, violence is not the way to go. We need law and order in our society. Maybe someday the pendulum will swing to more peaceful, and humanistic protests. Should we be following what Jesus preached?

    Because the world is slowly becoming more and more irrational, as the leaders of these major world powers are not setting a good example for the people of the country, that, is why there are so many violent protests, and we can only make sure, that we ourselves, behave well, because we can’t control anybody else but us…

    Indeed some good food for thought, Pete. Social media has made it possible for people to spew vitriol and hatred with relative anonymity. I believe as they continue to do so they become even more sure of themselves and their ‘reasoning’ and, hence, less inclined to be civilized and courteous. We’re seeing the results of this evolution play out across the world…
