So, I’ve been sick for a few days now and, as such, I’ve been catching up on the news. Did y’all hear about the powers that be lighting up the Empire State Building in Yellow and Red to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the PRC? I can understand it if we were commererating this event in a solemn fashion or with our aim being to remember the millions who were murdered as a result of the communist party’s takeover. But for some incredible reason we’re honoring the dishonorable… again. (Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they hold the biggest IOU on our national debt…)
But I feel like that’s kind of the trend lately. A Hollywood icon pleads guilty to drugging and otherwise sedating a 13 year old girl so he could have his way with her, then jumps bail and heads off to Switzerland. When he gets arrested there, all the Hollywood usuals come flocking to his aid, signing petitions and making speaches to try and free him because… he’s a great artist?
I’m just not sure if these are the same values as the ones that formed this great nation. Why are we honoring the dishonorable? Why are we standing up for evil?
Peace, hope and love.
