Peace on Earth
WAR IS OVER… If You Want It
JOHN LENNON/YOKO ONO
If the Mayan Calendar doomsayers are correct this could be my last column in the Eureka Springs Independent. I sure wont miss the Tuesday deadline.
It was hard to speak, never mind write about something after last week’s tragic shooting, an event so horrible and beyond comprehension that it will remain a collective wound to our nation’s psyche for a very long time.
The debate on gun control, mental health, and this country’s culture of violence will go into chatter overtime – peak – subside and return only when the next inevitable “record breaking” mass shooting occurs. Politics as usual.
Meanwhile, it’s that time of year when everyone is wishing, hoping or praying for Peace on Earth. Obviously, we are not wishing, hoping or praying hard enough.
