I had a great Thanksgiving. We met with family and friends and celebrated a new life coming Feb. 5 2016. Caroline Nancy Ball.
Nothing can ruin this. We avoided black Friday chaos. Kept the TV off. Watched Christmas movies and drank wine.
Then, I get the story of the Planned parenthood shooting. Another crazy white dude with a gun. The spin begins. They lay blame on everything; planned parenthood for existing, lack of guns at planned parenthood, gods wrath, some even call him a protestor. People call for gun control. People call for more guns. Wait a minute. It is Thanksgiving, where we celebrate what we are thankful for and the Indians saving the pilgrims with food.
One thing I want to make clear. The shooter, who I won’t glorify by naming, is not a protestor. A protest is the march on Selma, holding a sign, writing a politician, a letter to the editor, signing a petition. Proper protest is non violence. Proper protest is feeding the homeless in Fort Lauderdale and getting arrested. Proper protest is picketing planned parenthood. Proper protest is praying in public where you are told not to. Proper protest is not using a gun, taking hostages and using the media to enflame people. The politicians that are praising this act are part of the problem. How can you be prolife and advocate the killing of anyone? You have a right to be against or for abortion and to scream your view at the top of your lungs. You don’t have a right to kill people who disagree with you.
At least the holiday ended with the Patriots losing.
