Temple tragedy calls for love
Very little is known at this point about what happened this morning at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, but it seems that innocent people who gathered to pray were injured or killed by at least one gunman.
What we do know is that hate is once again the culprit. And although it feels like there is nothing we can do, there is one thing we can do.
Love. We can love.
Massive outpours of love can drown some of the hate. So I'm gonna step out of my usually snarky suit and speak straight from the heart. I propose right now, wherever you are, show love, say love, think love. Love in some way.
Let's create a massive Milwaukee love rally from wherever we are, right now, and send it out into the world, to the place we all hope exists where thoughts become actions.
We can do this, Milwaukee. Love. Now.
Most people want peace, but before we give up our right to bear arms.lets remember that evey day in America an 86 year old women is protecting her life and her property from unwanted subjects. Lets also remember that fate could have changed on that dreadful Sunday if someone other than the mad subject had a gun.
I'm an Oak Creek resident and native. All morning I could here sirens out my window. Tomorrow is my birthday and every year all I ask for is that everybody do something nice to put some love out into the world. Please do whatever you can, anything big or small, to make Peace a priority in your family and community. Tomorrow is also the anniversary of Hiroshima, which is celebrated as Peace Day in some parts of the world.
