So in the light of the shooting, my first instinct was to write to my senators and congressman and demand gun control. But as I think about it, I realize how that’s not the issue. It’s an easy fix but this is not an easy situation. Systemically I hold responsible:
- Our nutritional choices and supplies that cause numbed out thinking and foggy brains.
- Our wacked-out allopathic healthcare practices that drive symptoms deeper and are causing more damage than we are willing to see.
- Our outdated ways of parenting and relating that makes each person an object to be controlled rather a person to be loved and respected and valued.
- People who are walking wounded for so many reasons – out of touch and unaware of their heart, their souls, their love for the world.
This incident is not an indictment of our gun control laws – it’s an indictment of our society that is way out of balance for many reasons.
I can’t fix these systemic issues but I can do my part. So as we grieve, I ask you to look for where are you doing your part in all these different systems. It’s not just about guns or this one shooter or this one state. It’s about all of us and the choices we make and what we are willing to put up with, or not.
Love to you all,
