So much vested interest in the global dance with the rand
The Rand's recent "ra ra" is a global story, not a local one, and global sentiment can change.

Taking a closer look at the black-eyed Susan and trying to decipher it in pencil crayon. My thoughts are with very specific social workers and carers working in the dungeons where fallen angels are imprisoned. I'm thankful to God for his loving patience, teaching me how to soften and pour out my heart on these matters again

The USA, including countries with some of the most violent crimes in the world- Venezuela, Mexico, Honduras, South Africa and Brazil, to name a few. Cities like Caracas, San Pedro Sula, San Salvador, Acapulco, Maturin, Distrito Centra, Valencia, Palmira, Cape Town, St. Louis, Baltimore and many more violent cities around the world, living by the gun, maimed and dying by the bullet

Striving for medical excellence through teamwork, one has to salute the efforts and commitment of Surgeon - Dr. Goldberg

Fantastic Article
Data, Human Stories and Actions We Can Take

I know the 2nd Amendment has been turned into something of a cult thanks to the money-driven interests of the NRA and its powerful lobby and I also get how gun ownership has been wrapped up into this pseudo-empowering, freedom-loving, government-fearing culture where emotions run high and logic is optional.

Still, let's look at those who live it day in, day out. Looking not at the violence end of things (like cops do, for instance) but the results, the net effects of gun violence. Look at the shuttered lives and the data and then tell me, straightfaced and with reason that this is what a civilized country, in the 21st century should be like.

Or, you can, instead read this, understanding the disconnect between the lobbyists and the lawmakers - all those who have something to gain and balance this with those who are caught in the battleground, who lose no matter what happens. Shooter or victim, there is no upside for them. And then tell me you're OK with that.
