Mass Shooting Day — 0072

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.”

  • I am stressed out by advertising (among a bunch of other things).
    • Junk mail — much of it made to look like something official, occasionally I get sent the key to an automobile (really?), or I’ve won something (just sign the check, right?).
    • TV commercials, magazine ads, pop-ups on the computer — we are saturated with advertising.
    • Why don’t we decide that we want to live in a society free of constant lies?
    • Lies cause stress.
    • Stress leads to frustration.
    • Frustration often leads to homicidal violence. (Another Mass Shooting today!)
  • Is your church, mosque, or synagogue addressing issues of importance in the life of the society?
    • Do the Muslims, the Christians, the Jews even know what their books are telling them?
    • Is your church, mosque, or synagogue 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 27, 2017) is day 0072. Hopefully, we will put an end to this scourge before I run out of numbers.

Mass Shooting Day 0072.
