In honor of MLK & Gabrielle Giffords

Monday, January 17, 2011

“"We know that silence equals consent when atrocities are committed against innocent men, women and children. We know that indifferen­ce equals complicity when bigotry, hatred and intoleranc­e are allowed to take root. And we know that education and hope are the most effective ways to combat ignorance and despair."

~ Gabrielle Giffords”

    Fabulous quote. Thank you for sharing it. What he did should not be tolerated. He may have been crazy. But if that's true, he should not have been allowed to buy an automatic weapon.

    What leads to the creation of the kind of person who feels they have the right to take anyone's life? What incites them? How can anyone justify trying to kill someone like Gabriel Giffords who has chosen a life of public service and has eloquently stated her beliefs for the public record. The world is becoming an even crazier place.

    Believe me I have met a few educated idiots in life who did not have the sense to come in out of the rain. This person was simply nuts, go find him on You tube. He was a known idiot.
Also Dr. King preached changed through non violence yet a year after he died we had senseless violence and riots in DC in his name. What was that? Oh sorry another can of worms.

    Here, here......shame, though, if you ask me, that education probably wouldn't have made a damned bit of difference in the life of the attacker in Tucson......
