We are a changing democracy, whether we like it or not. America was never going to remain as it was in the “good old days.” What were the “good old days” for some, was a living hell for others. At best we are in the purgatory phase of our country’s evolvement, on our way to the heaven we all deserve.
The mass shootings that are occurring more and more frequently are not the product of any one group or individual. The tone of hatred for others different from ourselves is being promoted and yes, even tolerated, by many of us. Just as the world stood by during the Jewish Holocaust, so too is the world looking heavenward as hateful rhetoric spews forth from every corner of the world, including America.
God is not the answer to our problems, we are. He gifted the earth with enough bounty to share among ourselves; instead, we have evolved into a world of haves and have-nots. It was only a matter of time when the tide would begin to turn against those who have greedily hoarded more for themselves.
The ability to stop the inevitable is within our power. It’s never too late because we are a forgiving and resilient species. We just need to love all others as we love ourselves. Picking and choosing who can partake and who can’t is no longer an option. Not if we want to realize…
…a heaven on earth.
I love this. Every word is true; every emotion, every confusion, every conclusion, is the truth. Why we are a human beings so closed hearted? God gave us the power to make a difference. He isn’t going to do it for us. Thank you for a really emotional post.
bless you, goddess…for always having my back…lots of hugs!
Well said. 😃
thank you, friend…it’s been a while…hugs for stopping by…sorry I’ve been “out of the visiting loop”…been planning my daughter’s upcoming wedding for the last year…
Lol. I’ve pretty much left my blog to wither and die on the vine until recently. Haven’t done much visiting myself. I’m happy to see you’re still writing though. I do enjoy your post. 🙂
God bless you for commiserating…lessens my guilt… 🙂
It’s a shame that it takes a tragedy such as this to bring us back.
