Surely you saw that awesome FRENCH demonstration in the crowded streets of Paris Monday morning as MSNBC’s Erica Hill covered the story. You didn’t?
It was both dramatic and very “French like” in my theatrical mind as I sit in the confines of southwest USA. Paris, to me, represents the city of light; it’s the city of love, so when a demonstration broke out exhibiting a man with an [infinity] ethnic print scarf completely wrapped around his face and neck standing stoic in the center of the mass crowd as various Parisians approached him, kissed him and hugged him. It was a silent statement piece. It said to me,
“We know this is an act of Muslim terrorism, but we still love you [Muslims].“
Napoleon was a Frenchman so I didn’t take the show of humanity to be a ‘turning of the cheek‘ kind of love, but more of a “We know the distinction between terrorists and the spreading of bad energy — from the distinction of good people, just trying to make a good life for themselves.”
We know that all Muslims aren’t bad but the hell that the bad ones are wreaking must be thwarted. I don’t know where to begin in suggesting a strategy on HOW TO comprehend, confront or correct the issue, but higher heads need to prevail. I am confident that we are headed in the right direction with the course that our country is on. Resolution isn’t always swift. God bless our friends in France, Africa and beyond that are (and have been) enduring the same activity for sometime now.
To service members of all of the great countries that will take a stand to stop the mayhem:
My prayers are with you the most because I appreciate you and I do give a damn.
I know it isn’t an easy conquer to face down the unknown.
But Bad ain’t wearing a condom and his seeds are sewn.
Yet his virus isn’t full blown but he’s infecting daily.
Children are being recruited via social media — Its crazy!
Where did we go so wrong that our kids would want to sign up
to strap themselves with arsenal and blow up folks in a public cut?
Collectively? It must be, because from many societies their [recruit] list grows.
Here and abroad we cry out “Good Lord! They’re taking our babies souls.”
But to lay down, take it and roll?
I’m going to say that is a NO-NO.
I look forward to a better day coming.
I look forward to harmony humming.
I look forward to the day when all people feel that there life is worth living.
I send to all peace, love, resolution and healing.
Today the French are dealing. The terrorists said they are coming for Washington, DC next.
It sounded a bit like a terroristic pitch with a long-shot plea to connect.
I don’t know yo. I don’t. – But I do trust in God and am sure all will turn out well.
Do I love the French? Oui!! I am their namesake “Who,” — if you had not heard my tale.
Hugs. Love. War. They're all verbs.
