Take a Stand, with Me

It is up to each one of us to call out those responsible for acts of  brutal savagery and despicable barbarism and denounce them for what they are--pure, unadulterated evil.

It is up to each one of us to ensure as best we can that this world is safe and secure for all of us, beginning with the very young up to the very old.

It is up to each of us to expect our leaders not to shrink from their responsibilities to protect and defend us and when we see them shrinking from their duty it is up to each and every one of us to call them out.

They swore an oath--To secure us in our homes and as we go about our daily lives.    

Throughout history we have had those individuals who hesitated or shrank from their duty out of confusion or fear.

It is the same today.  Nothing's changed.

We are all responsible for one another.

And we all have an obligation to stand up in the face of evil, reach up and unmask it.

I am a peaceful person and want only peace for mankind but I'm also a realist.

I don't remember one time that this planet wasn't torn apart by skirmishes which turned into conflicts and then, finally a full blown war.

But I don't remember one time in my life I have not seen dead bodies scattered and strewn across the landscape, their torn limbs, tortured and tormented bodies succumbing to an early and ugly death's repose.  

The heinous and savage acts I see taking place today in which young girls are summarily being raped, children being torn in half, young and old beheaded and/or eviscerated because they happen to be Christians or refuse to be part of a growing Islamist threat against all humanity, is so off the chart that it is difficult to even comprehend the monstrosities that are now taking place.  

All of us have a right to life and to exist peacefully on this planet.  

No one--  No person, no government, no organization, has the right to deny this to any of us.  

It is time for the world to come together and act as one voice against this growing Islamist threat.

I am doing what I can to enlighten those who may not know exactly who is behind these terrorist attacks and why by posting articles and links to blogs.

Please stand with me.
