The Sanctity of Life Party?

I had every intention of writing a post about Tuesday’s school shooting in Michigan, the 29th school shooting so far this year — a year that had most schools closed until August. However, before I could put fingers to keyboard, I found this post by my writing partner Jeff, and since he said everything I wanted to say and did it even better than I could have, I am sharing Jeff’s post instead of re-inventing the wheel. Thank you, Jeff!

On The Fence Voters

On most days, parents drop their kids off at school, hoping they get a decent day of education and come home at night for supper. However, in the United States of America, that, unfortunately, is not always the case. There are times when some of those children do not come home. Because in this country, we value the right to have a firearm over the right not to be mowed down by a lunatic.

Only in America is this the case. And we have one political party that continues to look the other way and allow it to continue, unabated. This is also the same party that calls itself pro-life. The problem, of course, is that the only lives they consider sacred are the ones that sit in the womb of a mother.

The rest of us? Not so much.

On the day of yet another mass shooting at one…

  1. A sadly good share Jill.
    Apparently one boy at the school said to his mom he wasn’t going to school that day. He couldn’t say why, but he’d heard on the student grapevine there was something ‘going on’. She didn’t challenge him.
    The sobering chord is that it reminds me of words out of Michael Herr’s Vietnam war book ‘Despatches’ and an extract where one GI tells him ‘I dunno. But Charlie (Vietcong) is up to something’

  2. Thank you for sharing!!.. as I have said in the past, unfortunately there are elements in today’s world societies that have found their “comfort zone” are closed minded, “set in their ways”, and will deny any opposing ideology or thinking… in history’s past they could pack up and run and hide but not in today’s world… what we are seeing today is a cultural clash and the answers to the issues lie at home, the politicians simply an extension of their thinking… until the people work together, nothing will change… “The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom” (Isaac Asimov)… 🙂

    Have a wonderful holiday filled with peace and love and until we meet again…
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

  3. An excellent share indeed! I read this post from Brookingslib upon its arrival amidst my inbox last evening and thought of forwarding but quickly realized it would already have been read by yourself too! Reading your re-blog introduction it occurred to me that you are wise to conserve your time and energy by utilizing this well written post by the eloquent Jeff. That said, it also occurs to me that had you decided to do so, though it might sap your strength, an equally good piece would have seen the light of day. Never sell yourself short : “Know your worth. Then add tax.” – Unknown. WHAK!! Thank-you!

  5. I left what I hope is a damning comment on Jeff”s post, but felt it too long to repost here. I hope everyone who still cares about freedom will take a look, and let me know how they feel about all that is going on these days. I spoke in generalities, but I think we already know all the specifics.
