Dark Ages

Meanwhile our children are being murdered.
Not by terrorists who climbed over the wall, not by foreign agents or North Korea.
No. By Americans. Born and raised in America.
With help and support from our Government.
The nightmare continues.

Gun lobby
Blood money

Another mass murder in an American school.

The usual lip service by Republicans.
Not true, not Republicans anymore.
Trump servants, ones that sold their souls to evil: Money and power.
Faust is never getting outdated.
Another shooting.
And my first reaction – not again please, it is like a bad dream.
I am lost in dystopia, terrible dark age dystopia.
I have to wake up, enough is enough!
And then the somber realization – it is America today, it is real.
Anger overwhelms me, anger and a sinking feeling of hopelessness.
American children, America’s future is being systematically murdered.
One school after the other.
One mass murder after another.
Speeches of support and condolences.
And nothing is changing.
Same terrible hopeless routine.
The so-called people’s representatives offer a prayer.
A prayer.
And I want them to tell me how they feel.

How they think the parents, brothers and sisters of the murdered children feel?
Do you think that your lip service, your hypocritical condolences ease their pain, their tragedy?
Did you try to imagine your children in this school?
Being murdered one by one?
I am asking you, the Trump party – are you capable of real feelings – sorrow, shock, anger, love?
Or is your love only limited to money and power?
 
Terrifying question, realization comes to mind – our democracy is disintegrating.
Our rulers – they are fine with these murders.
They want us to live in fear.
To fear to take our kids to school.
Fear of immigrants.
Fear of science.
Fear of the real world, of real facts
Fear of the truth.
As any dictator, any military regime knows, it is easy to control when the population is in fear.
This works for them, this fear gives them power over people.
Trump and his willing servants – they love it.
This scary dystopia – this is what makes them feel powerful, it gives them riches that they worship.
And what is the worst by far – many support and re-elect these politicians.
Meanwhile our children are being murdered.
Not by terrorists who climbed over the wall, not by foreign agents or North Korea.
No. By Americans. Born and raised in America.
With help and support from our Government.

The nightmare continues.

American kids being murdered

We emigrated from the Soviet Union in 1979. I am proud of my children who grew up here in America. America is truly a great country and I am trying to do what I can to keep America great. We the people need to participate in a Democracy. I think that in a Democracy we need to constantly be vigilant and work to uphold our way of life. I am fighting for the freedom of speech and expression and against all kinds of extremes including political correctness.
