If Your Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention

Unrest… I couldn’t sleep last night. When I awoke and turned on the morning news, I was immediately inundated with the reality of our unrest as a nation.

As I watched a recap of the violence that occurred this past weekend, I immediately thought of a favorite quote, “Watch out when you follow the masses, as the M is often  silent.”

I needed to put a face, name and story on the ass that plowed his Dodge Challenger at a high rate of speed  into the masses, killing a 32 year old woman and injuring at least 19 others. His name is James Alex Fields, Jr. He is a twenty year old, who friends recall on a school trip to Germany revered Adolf Hitler and proclaimed, ‘This is where the magic happened.’

As James Alex Fields, Jr.  enters the courtroom this morning… I pray that in his unrest, as we put a face to such evil, we res0lve, this is NO PLACE FOR HATE.

Heather Heyer, the victim of his deadly plow very last Facebook post read “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention,”

I’m outraged Heather… RIP

no place for hate
