It's Only Words . . .

. . .but words are all I have.

The Christchurch shooting takes my breath away. I want to call it "inhuman" but it can only be human; no other species feels the need to destroy life for theoretical reasons. Quoting Mark Twain: "Man is the only animal who blushes, or needs to." But I'm far beyond blushing, I'm sick at heart.

Religion should have no place in this discussion but sadly it does; these people, good people at their house of worship, were targeted solely because of their religion. I was glad to see the American White House join other nations in condemning it -- far too often our President seems to look the other way when the violence isn't directed toward white Christians.
