A Blood-Stained Question

THE ORLANDO MASSACRE: WIKIPEDIA

MOTHER JONES: THE WEAPON

POTENTIAL SHOOTER KILLED IN TEXAS WALMART

The shell that has held the worst of our National madness together...is cracking and starting to spill out...on us all. And it is oozing a lethal poison...into our everyday life.

We are in the midst of an evil for which there is no cure. (Perhaps God, perhaps Yaw-Way, Perhaps Jehovah) And the person who built the weapon that Omar Mateen used probably doesn't even know what happened after that gun was shipped.

But we all know now...so does every victim that was shot dead.

And it really doesn't matter what the President, or the candidates, or the FBI, or the TV talking heads say now...the deed has been done and there will be no reversal. The rest of us are left looking at this latest example of human failure through weary, war-torn eyes.

Now that the curtain of life has once again fallen on yet another disgraceful act...a flag has risen out
of the mire and is beginning to wave. And that flag bears but one word: TRUTH.

Today...as our Country sits down to mourn the victims of this latest slaughter...I ask you:

Tell me what that truth is.

Does the desire for diversity mean that someone will always have to die?
