Letter: Resist evil

So many men are so insecure, so pitiful, that they have to hold women or Muslims or blacks or Mexicans or LGBTQ people down so they can feel powerful. We have seen too much evidence of that. All you men who are not like that, (and there are many) need to confront your fellow men in and out of Congress face to face -- not just on Facebook or with your friends. We are all reeling from the most recent shooting. Seventeen more young people are dead.

I have used Brillo on pots this morning. Each pot was, for me, the face of some politician who continues to make excuses and to avoid dealing with the NRA and the whole gun industry that allows bump stocks, A-K 15s (or whatever) rifles. The face scrubbing was for every single one who dares to continue to invoke God and promises to deal with mental illness. But my Brillo was also for all of us citizens who continue to shake our heads in sympathy but do nothing.

We are like the Germans who allowed the Holocaust. We must resist the evils in our Congress and in our neighborhoods -- even in our families. We can do that clearly and with love.  Vote the really bad ones out -- men and/or women. 

Your grandchildren and mine depend on our finding it in our hearts and minds to do the right thing.
