PEACE ON EARTH!

Dec. 21, 2013  By Jack Jodell. 

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all. A little over a year has passed since 20 little angels and their teachers were savagely murdered by automatic weapon gunfire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.

Despite a loud public outcry of condemnation at the time, these killings remain completely unavenged today. Second amendment extremist advocates and NRA lobbyists have successfully maneuvered to prevent any and all restrictions from being put on gun ownership federally. The tears and anguish of these victims’ parents, friends, and relatives have been shed and suffered for naught. Since Newtown, many hundreds of other violent, needless deaths have also been caused due to gunfire. This does NOT speak well of the United States! 

Military drone strikes ordered by our President have claimed the lives of a great many innocent foreign noncombatants. These deaths have included both young children and even their grandparents. All have been dismissed as mere collateral damage.

Think about it, everybody:

Murder has seemingly become an accepted way of life here in America: a sort of “new normal.” I, however, view it as callously abnormal. As I think of this season we are now entering and what it should represent, I am struck by how far away we are from, and yet desperately need to begin practicing, true peace on earth…

I am an American Dissident trapped in a country where poor and middle class people are constantly being exploited and lied to by a very rigid and conservative plutocratic elite. I believe in government OF, FOR, and BY the people, not one controlled as it now is by corporations and special interests.
