Usually on Fridays, I write a quotation commentary. But today, I'm pausing, instead, in a moment of silence for the victims of Fort Hood.
What happened was senseless and tragic... cowardly more than anything and I hope the shooter rots in hell when it's his turn to leave this Earth.
My heart goes out to the families of the victims and for the victims themselves. I pray for speedy recoveries for those left with life and community healing. It's bad enough when we lose the brave men and women who fight for justice, and for freedom, overseas. But to have one sick, deranged, jackass of a man take their lives while here on what should be safe American soil? I'm heartbroken and appalled.
My soapboxing, insofar as this blog is concerned, will usually stick to subjects like Twilight. But I just want to say this one thing:
People who think that violence is the answer to their personal problems, or believe that their "gods" call for violence, or who think "so what? I got a little drunk and hit her, she'll be fine", or anyone along those lines, deserve to be castrated (so they produce no others with their own twisted beliefs) and left to rot on an island with others of their kind.
