A Congresswoman and twelve others in her district were shot today. At this time it seems politically motivated.
Here I was, ready to write a really dumb post about baking. People’s lives changed today. Some ended. Some had a family member’s end.
I do think Sarah Palin, while not responsible for this event, was absolutely irresponsible with her original crosshairs poster.
I am sickened.
Here’s what I Facebooked: “Considering today, ironic that Congress read the Constitution the other day. That thing is chock-a-block full of non-violent ways to get yourself heard, change leadership, and let your ideologies be known.”
Yeah, not my best writing and a bit redundant there at the end, but you get my point.
And here’s the funny thing — I wouldn’t care which party, which politician, which people were the victims. I would still feel punched in the stomach.
Crying. I thought we were better than this.
