Mass Shooting Day — 0052

In the Spirit of the Gracious and Compassionate
Creator of the Heavens and the Earth

Lester A. Knibbs aka Doctor Hakeem

In the United States of America, every day is a Mass Shooting Day. It is no longer news. It is the new normal. (The “new normal”?! What is this — a fashion statement?) It should never be normal. We need to reject it.

Just as the daily news reports counted the days of the Iran Hostage Crisis, so should we count the days of mass shootings — until we put an end to it. “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

  • Drop a teabag into a mug of water, and the water becomes tea.

    • What kind of teabag are you? Your character, your words, your actions affect the society the same way a teabag affects the water.
    • Somehow, we have become a bunch of teabags who create a Mass Shooting society.
    • Feeling that you cannot change things is the same sort of frustration that causes many people to reach for a gun.
  • The people church-goers claim to follow were people who changed things. And then the churches became refuges for people who want to keep things the same. This leads to frustration, because the problems that the founders addressed are still here, but are no longer being addressed.
    • If you go to church for the music — or some other form of entertainment — why not stop being dishonest and go where you really want to go? The presence of your body at the service is a quiet testimony to whatever doctrine is espoused. Is it what you actually believe?
    • Is your church, mosque, temple, tabernacle, or synagogue addressing issues of importance in the life of the society? Is it an uplifting house of enlightenment and compassion and intelligent commitment to reform and healing and helpfulness? If not, get the hell out.

Unless I hear otherwise, I assume that this day and every day is a Mass Shooting Day.

I started the count Saturday, June 17, 2017. Today (August 7, 2017) is day 0052. Hopefully, we will put an end to this scourge before I run out of numbers.

Mass Shooting Day 0052.
