St Patrick's Day

Sunday 3-17-19

St Patrick's Day. I come 2 this writing with a sad heart. Once again some lost soul thinks he can find a solution 2 his own internal conflict & turmoil by the cold-blooded murder of innocent folk. These people are not simply normal, everyday people going about the business of life. But, once again, the softest of "soft targets", people at their weekly prayer service. Evil is anything that destroys life, or harms life, or depletes it or narrows it down. Actually the word "live" is evil backwards. I have some points to make & it may take me some time/Wow! Right after I wrote that last line things got hectic. One thing after another just swamped me.

One of the amazing co-inky-dinks that r constantly happening 2 me. I took down some notes 2 remind myself of some of the points I intend 2 make. I thought about all of the disparate ways racism is still adversely affecting people in Western (read: 1st world European) societies. I mentioned reparations have not been paid 4 the enslavement of Afrikans & Afrikan-Americans Then, just now, as I picked-up my penn 2 scribe, the was a segment on the PBS News Hour. A man running 4 President in 2020, Gov. Jay Inglee (D) Washington, a white-man, is saying that he will push 4 reparations 4 slavery in the USA. He spoke elequantly about how the enforced poverty of slavery has never been overcome by most Afrikan-Amerikans becuz, as a group, Afrikan-Amerikans have been blocked. And it's really plain & simple. And if we want 2 fix our broken social scene, we should start by righting the wrongs of the past.

Back 2 the lecture @ hand. If u have read the last few entrees on this blog, then u already know I refuse 2 say the names of creeps like this guy. I will just call him "this guy" or "that guy who..." If he feels the Muslims are his problem he's not thinking things thru 2 the truth. But this guy told a truth that a lot of people overlook or turn away from refusing 2 c. He said he & his people are ready 4 an all out race-war! No time 2 panic, but no time 2 bury our collective heads in the sand, either.

It's terrible, I'm almost ashamed, but I've got 2 go. I WILL write tomorrow - even if it's something short.

Peace after revolution!
