Lets Start Out With Thoughts And Prayers

Since the horrific shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last Wednesday, there have been a lot of hot takes about what should have been done or what can be done going forward.

This is a natural response to such an evil event that is sickening to think about.

Yet one of the reactions that I have seen over and over again is that saying “Thoughts and Prayers” to the victims and their families is no longer is accepted and plain useless.

I’m wondering why.

Caleb Howe touched on this last week with his post Your Thoughts And Prayers Matter. Offer Them, Mean It, Let No One Deter You.

On Saturday, one of the students from the High School, Emma Gonzalez said this at a rally for the community as reported in People Magazine

“Every single person up here today, all these people should be home grieving,”  “But instead we are up here standing together because if all our government and President can do is send thoughts and prayers, then it’s time for victims to be the change that we need to see.”

I understand the need to do something right now, but why are we dismissing people offering condolences and healing through prayer?

I would suggest at the rally that is planned for March 24th ” March For Our Lives” that they start out with a prayer for guidance.  Doing something for the sake of doing something has never led to a good result. Possibly a prayer for guidance might help start this rally out on a positive note.

As we all witnessed last Wednesday in Parkland, evil exists in this world.

Asking for God’s guidance in combatting such evil is the best way to start a national conversation on how to move forward.

BREAKING. Conservatives Projected To Lose Outright Control In U.K. Parliament

Prime Minister Theresa May took a bit of a gamble back in April calling a “Snap Election” in the United Kingdom to strengthen the Tories position on Brexit.

This might have backfired.

According to early exit polls, the Tories look like they will fall short of the 326 needed for an outright majority and end up with a projected total 314. Down 17 from 331. Labor looks to be the big winner with a 34 seat gain up to 266.

The Tories will still have enough to be the largest majority but will need to form a coalition with one of the smaller parties to get a ruling majority, much like the one put together during former Prime Minster David Cameron’s first turn leading Parliment.

How this will affect the Brexit vote taken back in June of 2016 is going to be a hot topic after all the votes are counted if this trend continues.

We all know over here that projections sometimes do not turn out the way they are originally reported. President Hillary would no doubt agree, so this is one to watch until all the numbers are all counted.

The will go deep into the night across the pond and you can follow it all on BBC

Kathy Griffin Thinks Decapitation Is Edgy

Kathy Griffin is edgy.

TMZ has an exclusive photo  of the famed D-list comedienne holding a head of a decapitated Donald Trump. Griffin joked that her and the photographer, Tyler Shields, would need to head to Mexico or risk being thrown in jail.

This is what it has come to in America. We have to hate on someone so much for reasons we can’t really articulate, that holding a head representing a current President Of The United States, all bloody and mangled is “Fair Game.”

Does anyone find this funny? Even remotely?

Kathy Griffin is edgy all right. Right on the edge of being one of the crassest and unfunny people alive in the country today.
