  1. Too emotional to post right now. Sorry.

    I shudder when I see that photo.

    If only I could move through time and cushion them from injury and from the terrorist hate directed at them. They were standing against and denouncing hate; they were pushing for peace and love.

    Times are scary. Times are dangerous. Now is the time to take a stand against violence, hate, and racism.

    What The World Needs Now Is Love

  3. Love has it’s place. As does anger. A case in point: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/lawyer-says-dashcam-video-shows-11-minute-search-of-womans-vagina_us_5991abd1e4b08a247275e473?section=us_black-voices&ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000051

    A human being is entitled to all their emotions. Fear, sorrow, love, anger, each has it’s purpose.

    • Even with video and audio, the police will still not accept responsibility for abusing and raping, this human being. How humiliating. And dehumanizing. I feel like smacking people who say ‘all lives matter’.

  4. What’s also horrific are those who still say it’s the fault of ‘both sides’. I like what Mitt Romney had to say about the difference between Antifa and the Alt Right:

    “This isn’t the first time Romney spoke out about Charlottesville. He tweeted earlier this week, “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.”

    • Mindyme,
      The methods of abusive people is to keep those they want to control silent and in bondage. Their general attempt to accomplish that is by use of intimidation.

      The White Supremacists at the protest in Charlottesville assumed that their intimidation, including marching in front of a church while carrying torches the night before their planned protest, was to instill enough fear so that no counter-protesters would be on the street that Saturday.

      Because intimidation did not work, they construed it as an act justifying the use of violence and placing the blame on the counter-protesters for not being afraid of them.
