Every Tragedy Has A Lesson

Peter (aka Bayou Renaissance Man) has a well thought out post regarding the terrorist attack in Florida, and personal response.  (Link Here)  Because group response after-the-fact is rarely efficient or just! (more gun control?!)

(In part:)

We’ve discussed terror attacks like that last night at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on numerous occasions in these pages.  Suffice it to say that anyone with two brain cells to rub together knew that something like this was coming.  Furthermore, it won’t be an isolated event.  More such attacks will follow.  Our terrorist enemies have already promised that – and every time they’ve made that promise, they’ve kept it.  We know they’re coming.  The question is, are we – we as individuals, not just as a society – prepared to do something about it?

There is much more in his post.  Please, educate yourself and go read it!  (You should be reading Peter daily, regardless!)

He concludes asking what lessons WE have learned(?)

Here is the comment I humbly left:

A.C.E.
ALWAYS CARRY EVERYWHERE!

Something I am already doing, barring the interference of metal detectors.
Just signage? Ignore it.
OR DON’T GO IN!

Easy Peasy.

Now, I’m not advocating violating any law.  HOWEVER, this is truly a personal choice.  Better to be tried by twelve, than buried by six?

I would ask all of you bloggers out there to at least make the effort to post a link to www.projectwelcomehometroops.org/#22kill

22 VETERANS COMMIT SUICIDE DAILY

Even ONE of these heroes making this choice is unacceptable! (Day #10 of 22)
