When Does It stop?

Given the horrific incident that took place at the club in Orlando, I cannot bring myself to be funny or post puns.  I am totally fed up with humanity and how someone can senselessly take away the multiples of lives with the gutless use of an assault rifle.  It just sickens me and tears at my heart.

That this sick bastard would use his hatred for LGBT people as a means for perpetrating his terrorist action is completely sub-human.  Yet, I do not hold this against people of any particular beliefs or race.  This wasn't about Islam or Muslims.  This was about someone with a totally blackened heart, full of hatred for people that were of NO threat to him, or anyone else for that matter.

My heart cries for these innocent lives lost, those injured, and the families of everyone directly impacted by this act.  My heart cries for the continued loss of life at the hands of gun violence.  As I ask in my title for this blog entry, when does it stop?

Horribly sad, numbing.even. I do fear how this will be spun in the media by that rotting sack of tangerines, and his GOP campaign.

I have this awful feeling that the police didn't handle the situation well initially. I fear that many of the deaths may have been preventable. I hope I'm wrong.  It's a sick world in which we live. And it's never going to end. Too many guns.

I do not want to hear his stupid fucking voice ever again, but especially not today. You already know he's going to use it to pedal his disgusting Islamaphobia. 50 people are dead, do not use it to further your hateful political agenda!

Do yourself a favour, and DO NOT look at presidential candidate's reactions. It was everything you are imagining and more.

Again, another shooting. This brings back sorrowful memories of losing my friend who was Principal of Sandy Hook Elementary School.  There are no more words. Just tears for more loss of life.

      I hope Caris is doing well.

      She seems to be doing pretty good. She has some motor delays so she’s in physical therapy.

      That's what I was thinking as well. I listened to it again this morning and it really sounds like that. I was thinking also how if (in a regular church) the pastor dies there's no going on and on about "unity" and that we "WILL keep this going"...it's just a given. Because in a regular church it's about God not about one individual leader of the church. Right now I'm sure they are all hanging on the hope the Elizabeth can keep the "magic" going. But she's no Gwen and does not have the charisma nor the drive. Maybe just playing old videos will be enough for the congregants. Who knows.

      If old videos of Gwen are enough, that is just sad.

      That slip-up makes me think that she was urged to stay on for a year to keep Remnant going.  Maybe she agreed, on the condition that someone else would take it on when they were no longer worried about it utterly failing.  I wonder how much they've agreed to pay her and Michael...?

      Listening to Elizabeth ramble on about life after mom & hubby and have many comments but a pressing question:  When she announces that she's moving into Ashlawn and the congregants erupt in a cheer - was there probably an APPLAUSE sign that lit up? Did the elders on-stage signal the pewsitters to cheer?

      It seems so incredibly phony, and yet she sounds totally self-confident. Yikes yikes yikes.

      Elizabeth is down for living in a mansion (yay) and probably hosting color themed dress up parties for the inner circle as long as other people do the work.  In the world of Christianity we would say (sarcastically), "way to carry the cross".

      It's interesting that most think that Anna *should* leave (of course I agree). And that she *can* leave. 

      When Toby Willis was found guilty of raping his daughters, I said that Brenda Willis should have left years ago. It seemed like a no-brainer, she'd known for years what was happening.

      Many people rushed to her defense and said she "couldn't" leave, that it was too scary, how would she support herself, etc, etc.   You can see these comments on the Willis page right now. Nearly everyone (except me) thought she had really no alternative but to stay (which meant her daughters would be sexually abused for another decade).

      What is the difference between Brenda and Anna? I'm asking out of genuine curiosity.  Why it's so obvious and doable that Anna should leave and Brenda "could not"?

      If it's about money, I believe that Toby's family is wealthy, like the Duggars. (they got a huge settlement from the car accident, I think).

      If it's about having small kids, they're both in the same season. Brenda had many small children under 12 when she learned of Toby's disgusting deeds. Anna has many as well. 

      But it isn't just about money or children, but the idea that it would've been too emotionally too stressful for Brenda to leave, while people seem to think that Anna should do it.

       

       

      You got me down the Willis rabbit hole with this question.  Thanks for some fascinating reading.  (I was vaguely aware of the family and the story, but never looked closely.)

      My best guess for why some people are readier to understand why Brenda Willis didn’t leave is that she didn’t, while with Anna there is still the hope that she will.  In other words, Brenda’s choice was in the past, so condemning her seemed cruel when she was obviously suffering.  With Anna we are responding in the present: she can still leave.
