Today, July 20th 2012 we lost thus far, 12 lives in another senseless shooting massacre, but it is a time for reflection and not recrimination. 43 years ago today, we landed on the Moon! America and its people are resilient! We will always overcome!

God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters, for God can do wonders with a broken heart if we would give Him all of the pieces.

We can learn from 24 year old Jessica Ghawi AKA Jessica Redfield, one of the twelve people that was shot and killed today.

 

Jessica Ghawi, while visiting Toronto Canada last month [June 2012] was nearly caught in the Eaton Centre mall shooting, which left two dead and six injured. On her blog she wrote that she left the mall just three minutes before the gunman opened fire on the food court, right where she was previously standing.

 

Her blog post touches on her experience cheating death that day and opines on the fragility of life. As she watched Emergency Responders that day rush victims out on stretchers, she wrote;

 

“I saw the victims of a senseless crime, I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where, we will breathe our last breath.”

 

Subsequently after fortuitously escaping the Eaton Centre Shooting in June 2012, Jessica posted a blog:

 

“My mind keeps replaying what I saw over in my head. I hope the victims make a full recovery. I wish I could shake this odd feeling from my chest.”

 

Today is my brother’s birthday. He was a Police Officer who lost his life at the age of 34. And yes, to this day this remains to me another senseless killing for which I can say without hesitation, I have never really gotten over nor  have I ever come to understand why my brother had to die. But what I can say is that “sadness” that perpetuates pain is difficult but if we can learn to see with our heart and not our eyes, I know, “we can all see much farther than we could ever imagine and in so doing, with the grace of God, we can become COMFORTERS.”

Political Prostitute and Psychopath, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann and some of her colleagues, are endangering America’s Soldiers and reputation around the world!

[After a decade plus, America’s sons and daughters are still fighting and dying in Afghanistan and for scoring political points to assist them in raising money, people like Michelle Bachmann and others, endanger our Soldiers who are in the battle fields all over the world protecting our free speech and our way of life.

The protection of America’s men and women in uniform should never be a Republican, Democrat, Independent or partisan undertaking, “it should be an unequivocal all-out American responsibility.”]

Senator John Mc Cain, rebukes Michelle Bachmann!

In an unusually direct speech aimed at members of his own party, Senator John McCain a longtime aide and confidant of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Huma Abedin a Muslim and the deputy chief of staff and aide to Clinton, has been accused by former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann (Minn.) and four other House Republicans of being connected to a conspiracy theory that the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to infiltrate the highest levels of the U.S. government.

In a letter last month to the State Department’s inspector general requesting an investigation, the House Republicans cited a study from a conservative think tank that said Abedin “has three family members — her late father, mother and her brother — connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations. Her position affords her routine access to the secretary and to policymaking.”

Around noon, a somber McCain rose in her defense — not just to support a friend but also to take on fringe voices in his own party. It was a familiar role for McCain, who built a reputation as a maverick with a willingness to criticize what he believes are radical views within his party.

In his first bid for the presidency, in 2000, McCain labeled Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell “agents of intolerance.” And in his 2008 campaign, amid rising conspiracy theories about then-Sen. Barack Obama, McCain took the microphone from a woman at one of his town hall meetings who had called Obama an “Arab.”

“No ma’am,” McCain said, “he’s a decent family man.”

McCain’s candor has, at times, gotten him in trouble with his own party, although no one, aside from Bachmann, criticized his remarks Wednesday.
