On a Gathering of Peaceful Minds

In light of the latest tragedy and the constant, senseless killings being witnessed in the United States, this blog advocates an immediate gathering of minds.

A gathering of peace-loving minds that will "come together to take meaningful action" and bring to light permanent and solid measures to put an end to the rampages which are now a common occurrence north of (and quite frankly, south of) the Rio Grande.  So common it has become natural. Surely there is a way out of this madness and people all over have a right to safety, security and peace of mind.

Deaths, be they caused by uncontrolled gun laws or by connivance, can be stopped if those at the receiving end join hands both literally and figuratively in a national peace effort, one such that will influence all levels of society and government. It can be done, it can be achieved.

Far too many people have lost their lives as in this latest calamitous event which saw the death of innocent children and adults alike. Surely,  there is a way - the impetus and the means - out there to enable that to happen. Take action and, by all means, make it meaningful!

On When Everything You Think You Know About People is Still in Progress

This is a photo circulating on Facebook about an unsconscionable, if that is the right word, happening one should never be exposed to: a New York citizen being killed, right on the spot and right under the very eyes of we do not know how many people, by a train!

Perhaps, a testament of the sickness and oblivion we all are suffering in this day and age when sensationalism wins the day and the virtues that make people people are nowhere to be found.

We have all thought the same thing: "how someone with nerves of steel and a compassionate heart could have rushed to the edge of the platform and saved the unfortunate victim from impending death," have we not?

We have. Granted we were not there to witness the tragedy and we do not know how, if at all, we would have reacted under that horrific circumstance. Now, really, where are we headed as humans? To an abyss?

Still, it is food for thought. What says you?
