  •  thanks for the reminder. I have tried to limit (6+ / 0-)

    my comments this weekend mainly because when i went into full tilt "i've had enough of this bullshit" during the Colorado theater shooting, people got very angry with my response. Not rude angry but "i shouldn't vent if i don't know what i'm talking about" angry. Like my feelings at the time were irrelevant to the matter at hand. And now, just a few short months later, here we are again. Having the exact same conversation but this time it is over the bodies of babies.

    Death is emotional and searing. The death of children too much to bear. We have to remember that. Feelings are raw and have to be okay to express without personal offense. I don't live with you so please, whatever I say, let it roll off. It will not be mean but it will be coming from a place of pain and hurt. Be kind and remember we are all here together to get through this. We are here looking for support from one another to make sense of a senseless act. Hating on each other is not necessary.
