This past week has been really horrible … mail bombs, two black men shot in a grocery store, a mass shooting at a Jewish synagogue … apparently all at the hands of extremist, far-right white men. That’s terrorism, by the way.
Not that terrorism is new on American soil, I mean, the KKK have been running amok for more than a hundred years now. Maybe I deceived myself because they were not on prominent display. Well, they and their ilk are definitely on prominent display now.
I am sad and I’m angry. I adhere to the philosophy that in a world where you can be anything: be kind. These terrorist acts fly in the face of that philosophy. And I don't know how to reconcile it.
However, I’m also writing a book about how Death exacts retribution. I’m sure some of this will come out in that.
Go forth and write!
