When you gonna wake up?

“I created the sound of madness, wrote the book on pain
Somehow I’m still here to explain
That the darkest hour never comes in the night
You can sleep with a gun
When you gonna wake up and fight for yourself?”

God Hates Hate

God does not attend the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas.
They protest military funerals with signs that proclaim, “God Loves Dead Soldiers”.
My son is sacrificing his life for their right to carry that sign,

and the Supreme Court just upheld their right.

Broken

I am back in Florida following ten days of hell.  We are all still breathing; I am unsure we are all alive. 

I am mostly certain that I am broken.

Until I watched him walk away…

I was always excited to watch him follow his dreams. Until I watched him send everything he owns off in a moving van. Until I watched him walk out of his empty apartment to turn in his keys. Until I watched him get up from his desk & leave the office with his title on the door. Until I watched him leave his beloved Mustang in his reserved parking spot. Until I watched him walk away wearing a rucksack & machine gun.
