From an enlightened standpoint, Ukraine's karma is coming up to be cleared, which, as unfair and ironic as it may seem, is progress in the right direction. It is a necessary evil, if you will, in order for this particular healing process to play out, but that doesn't make the reality of it any less gripping. I'm sure we could all agree, that walking in the war-torn shoes of a Ukrainian would be anybody's worst nightmare.
I've been through a lot in my life, as most of us have. But, my path has been very trying, tumultuous and tragic, more than the average person. Things could have been worse. However, the personal impact of anyone's plight should never be up for debate. We all have a story. Don't we?
The Military Industrial Complex has its feathers up again, its skunk juice cranked and it's marking territory like a bulldog in heat pissing on your neighbor's prizewinning rose bush. This "Naa naa nee boo boo... my gun is bigger than yours" nonsense has broken new records for being a whole new brand of absurd. Gun violence is not just rampant on our streets, it is rampant on the world stage for all to see, loud & clear as if we are being forced to normalize it. We will never minimize gun violence on Main street until we eradicate the gun violence on WALL STREET. War is a top tier profiteering enterprise that sits on the greedy perch of its Wall Street penthouse, and it's high time we knock it down.
