America

“America, where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know, we need you now?
We can't fight alone against this monster.”
Steppenwolf; Monster; 1969.



The mass-murder at the Florida school last week showed the intensity of the sickness that threatens our society. The voices of the student survivors express not only a call to conscience, but a path to treatment and healing. They speak the Truth.

I am in awe of their goodness.

Peace,
H2O Man

1. Monster fits too well

Bits of that have been playing in my head since the campaigns during 2016.

Found this.

4. yes

"Hey you! Keep your head down. If they should find you now, the man will shoot you down."

[edit]

Oops. The above is from "Renegade" from Steppenwolf 7. Still fits, though not as closely as "Monster".

16. I have been slightly more active past few days

I am encouraged by the Mueller indictments.

But completely discouraged and heartbroken over the latest shooting.

I just cannot anymore.

Terribly close to home.

18. They truly represent the best of us... the best of this country.

We have some future leaders coming out of that wonderful place.

They would make their school's namesake proud with their activism.
