Words far greater than my own

Hello everyone;

  Jay pointed this link out to me in his comment.  I am ever thankful.   Please look into these two posts and tell me what you think.  I just don't know what to say - there just has to be a better way!

Hallo Randy,
I can not believe that this mother should send their child into prison, that she and her children can be helped.
The United States is a rich country.
Cut a few billion from the space budget or defense budget. There is enough left over for health insurance.
Using the slogan "Swords to Plowshares".

Hi Nikki;
I'm struggling a bit today, so this may come off poorly... there is a disconnect in this country. We find ourselves with blinders, unwilling to look at the lives of those NOT on tv. Somehow, those who are different, troubled, needing help, needing hope - instead find themselves chastised, laughed at, ignored. It is only when the tragedy occurs that we see beyond our little safe world, our little fantasy destroyed by reality. Do we see ourselves change and face the pain, or do we scream about the injustice of it all and blame someone, anyone, as long as it isn't that guy in the mirror?
Life is cheap as long as I'm right. I can hate as long as I'm liked. I can holler as long as others respect my desire for quiet. I can be rude as long everyone is polite to me. This is the mindset of our leaders, our riot mentality populace so governed by tv many refuse to read, to think, to place themselves in an other man's shoes.
I'm sad today that the reaction of so many to this incredible event, this tragedy, is to go buy guns. It's so sadly ironic.

Be well, my friend.
