Never in the history of this blog have I ever gotten overtly political. NEVER in my time on Facebook, prior to 2016, have I been a political loudspeaker. But I can't help myself these days. I simply can not be silent.
Saying Stop Shooting Our Kids does not make me a libtard snowflake.
But I see what they are doing there, they being the people who are working so hard to desensitize us to human suffering. They being the generation before me that wants to suggest that the current outcry to STOP the bullshit is a bunch of sensitive
do-nothings. They being the people who want to shame the people who are slowly finding their own voices.
I know what they are doing.
They are snidely and systematically attempting to devalue the opinion of the loudening voice, the voice that has been kept down, quiet, hidden, feeling alone for all of these years. The minority voices of all kinds, the voices of all women, the voices of anyone different from the white man, the voices of people without religions, the voices of people without the power, the voices of the victimized, the voices of the wounded.
They are trying but we won't let them.
The name calling is the battle cry of the person without a leg to stand on. Remember, rudeness is a weak person's imitation of strength.
Let's not buy it!
Let's buoy one another up!
Let's support the disenfranchised who have the courage and the voice to stand up and say NO MORE.
Come out, come out and let your voice be heard.
