SNAP Challenge – Day 5 | Two Words: Not Important. Why? Four Words: Sandy Hook Elementary School

Jesus, Jah, Buddha, Yahweh, Whoever: Help Us.  ‘Cause we need it.

Please, pray for all the children, parents and educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School, as well as the greater community of Newtown, Connecticut.

My SNAP Challenge is unimportant.  I ate today: breakfast, lunch and dinner–and guess what?  20 children didn’t even have the opportunity to live to have lunch.  Now, 20 parents are suffering unimaginable grief while preparing to or having to identify their children’s bodies at the morgue and discuss funeral arrangements.

Chew on that.

My SNAP Challenge is complete nonsense at this juncture.

You have kids and grandkids, you hug them like their lives depend on it and you tell them that you love them. Got it?

You don’t have kids, you hug your nieces, nephews and friends’ kids personally, or if that’s not possible because of distance, pick up the telephone, make a call to see how they’re doing.

I’m calling The Southern Branch of La Familia to check on The Mini Diva and The Guy.

I can’t pray any more than I’ve already been praying since forever during times like these.

I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of this depraved, narcissistic, sociopathic, “Me”-centric, self-absorbed nation where when someone’s unhappy, their answer is to pull out a gun — no questions asked.

From picture-perfect America to da hood, we are losing children and adults by the thousands.

It is obvious to me that the value of a human life is pretty much zero.

There are domestic terrorists running around slaughtering people left, right and center.

20 children died today in the “perfect community” who should not have died and deserved to go home to be with their families and sleep in their beds like any other child.

And by the way, there were countless others who met unnecessary deaths this week — and today alone — also from violence.

Obviously, we aren’t saddened or angry enough.  Bottom line: We’re not mad as h*ll at occurrences like these.

You can’t keep talking about issues and problems without doing something about them. That doesn’t work — EVER.

Oh, and one more thing:  Newtown, Connecticut is less than an hour away from where I live.

  1. I cannot even fathom how I would function if I lost my kids -family or my precious grandkids – such senseless deaths-what happened to make a young man snap like that??

    • I don’t know “what” and “why” with these acts of inhumanity. But let me get something off my chest. I’m a little sick and tired of hearing about these individuals being classified with illnesses and conditions of all kinds, and ridiculously in the same breath about how wonderful they or their families were, but then flipping again and saying something else like they were “quiet” or “loners” etc., etc., etc.. There’s a great deal of empathy that I have to those with mental illness, but every time these things happen, there’s ALWAYS an excuse — and I use the word “excuse” because I have no other word to use. And furthermore, what pisses me off even more — and I’ve thought long and hard about this because I don’t want to throw out the race card — every time there’s gun violence, if it’s a person of color, they’re a nuisance and “animals”. When it’s a white person, it’s “well…(insert excuse)”. From Manson to Gacy to Bundy to Dahmer to Harris and Klebold to Holmes to now this young man Adam Lanza. There’s ALWAYS something they pull out of the hat from current issues to past issues. Anyone else of color is simply garbage and evil personified.

      I say nothing more, but that. I’ve already addressed this in a previous blog post and my stance does not and will never change, because it has NEVER, EVER been otherwise. It’s the same old story: Rinse. Stir. Repeat.
