Thank you for your service.
Although we will never understand these attacks, we do have huge emotion over them in the direction of anger, sadness, and shock.
I think they hit every American. It can be very unsettling to all when we have such a random and senseless act which reveals our sacred security is actually fragile and shattered in an instant by these horrid reminders.
They happen too often. I don't want to wake up to another.
It's also a tell tale sign we live in different times where humanity has a price and people think life is cheap. There are people who view some professions as sacrificial or less than others. There are those who believe, "Well, that's the risk cops take."
If I hear those type of statements, I get a little peeved. Idiot talk and ignorance. It isn't the fact people are ignorant that bothers me so much, it is the lack of seeking correct information or educating oneself. Just continue to live in your dumb world because you refuse to learn the answers or seek information or educate yourself.
Of course peace officers know the risks when they take the oath. Of course we do! It doesn't make them sacrificial lambs. Gah. We don't EXPECT to get ambushed or killed every duty. We EXPECT to go home to our families.
It doesn't make these barbaric acts OK either. Or even justifiable by mental illness or vendetta against police and/or poo-pooed or explainable. Nor should we ever become numb to them! KRIMENY Ethyl, we should be rattled each time a soldier is killed or an officer is slain.
Raise your bubbles! Come out of your mommy's cellars and wake up!
We can all watch people walk around with vaginas on their head for women's issues, but no one gets rattled or aligns together to rally about our safety and security. It's expected.
Well, it's not that easy, folks.
BTW...the title is a riddle. Do you know what it is?
