The response to my post yesterday has me questioning why we even have free speech. Why I have spent the last six years of my life blogging most every day. Why I have always been there to help anyone and everyone with their blogs or blog design, out of friendship and community.
Yesterday I made a statement that, in my eyes, was taken out of context. I cried many tears over the comments rendered yesterday. I felt like blood in the water amidst sharks.
I have not served in the military forces. But I appreciate each and every member of those men and women who dutifully serve our country. THEY are the ones who should have the assault weapons to protect themselves. THEY are the heroes. This country, albeit shaken and divisive, is not truly at war in the true sense of the word. Although you wouldn’t know it by the fierce and driven anger.
I have considered deleting my blog after this. I’m so tired of those that strike back as though they personally have been targeted. I have learned that you cannot have a discussion over something so tragic as what happened last week without those that will twist your every word.
And I will reflect today on what is good and wholesome in this world.
