If you live in or very near a major metropolitan city, you may be keenly aware of the sadness and violence where you live. I live about 40 miles away from downtown Los Angeles, and it is my TV that has the images of what is going on. Frankly, I have turned off, or stayed away from the news. I lived through the LA riots of the 60s, and all since then. Nothing has really changed. People of color are still abused and some are killed for no reason. I doubt if we (my generation) will ever see the day when things get better. One thing that has changed is that everyone now is carrying a cell phone, and has the ability to transmit images of the abuse, which in turn spreads like wildfire to others, including far away places. People react to what is on their small screens. A local protest becomes a national, or global protest in the blink of an eye. People who have no affinity to the actual protest, use it as an excuse to riot, destroy, loot, and take down our rules of law in the process. Trying to sort through who are the protesters, and who are the anarchists and white supremacists will eventually be analyzed by law enforcement and the FBI. In the meantime, the economy and the hopes of many struggling to make a business profitable are in a heap of ashes. I like what I saw in a news item, and it was something like...."the governors and mayors are trying to cool the situation while the president is playing with matches". Let HCR fill you in on the rest:
CoronaTrump is a nasty virus, and if we distance ourselves like
Patriots, like a miracle it will all be gone in the Fall.
