Days to Remember
Today in New York City a parade celebrated the Yankees 27th winning of the World Series. Today in Seattle a miles and hours long procession honored and mourned a police officer shot while sitting in his police car Halloween night. The shooter is unknown. Today in Orlando, Florida, a man laid off two years ago and out of work returned to his former place of employment and opened fire, killing one and injuring many. Today the community of Fort Hood, Texas is in shock and mourning after an Islamic soldier apparently fearing deployment to Iraq opened fire on fellow soldiers he was trained to help. Hate talk is radiating from right wing media. Twenty years ago the Berlin wall fell, allowing freedom to defeat tyranny. It would be flip to say we win some, lose some. But obviously we still have much to overcome.
