I love my friends; the ones who live 13 minutes away and the ones who dwell 1,300 miles from my home. I love them because they come from all walks of life, follow the most diverse beliefs and because they are ready to stand by my side when required. Like this morning...
If we are friends on the social media fun-monsters, you might’ve already seen the “Oklahoma’s 10 Commandments To Get A Sister Memorial… From The Satanic Temple” thread, which appears on my wall.
A lost kid flung a nasty racial insult my way. His vocabulary must be limited, for in a 3-word comment he felt the need to include an F-bomb and the N-word. This was said in reply to this comment: “Well, well, well... it seems that the ginormous holes in the wall that is supposed to separate church and state are leaking all kinds of interesting things. I'm very curious to see where this is going. Will the Constitution be (finally) remembered? Or will hypocrisy prevail? I wonder, wonder, wonder...”
To those of you who emailed me to express the anger you felt on my behalf, I will say that this doesn’t upset me all that much. Does it make me a little sad? Sure; knowing that our world is populated by thoughtless, brainless, heartless and pretty much humans who behave in ways that suggest that they embrace their lessness, is a wretched thought. And a challenge, too; for I believe that we can try to teach them better. If their brains (or lack thereof) reject education, we can at least use them as examples to show our children what they should NEVER become.
In darkness? Light! And cackles, and a little dancing, and more cackles, my Wicked Luvs;-)
