Enough with the Knee-Jerk Reactions!

source

I have tried to stay away from current events here.  This blog is about organic gardening, heirloom seeds, health/nutrition and DIY projects.

However...I am sick and tired of the politicizing of the Connecticut tragedy.  It is despicable!  This is NOT the time to start talking about infringing on our rights as free citizens of the United States of America.  This is NOT the time to demonize people with mental illness.  This is NOT the time to verbally attack ANYONE based on character, way of life or their opinions.

This IS a time of mourning and reflection, prayer and peace

Do your own research before forming an opinion instead of spouting the garbage that is out there in the media.  The stuff we are being fed.  I have chosen to turn off the tv and shut down my computer for now.

In the meantime, I have seed orders to fill at Mary's Heirloom seeds, vegan lip balm to make and Oh ya...I'm getting MARRIED!

Below are a few links that you may or may not find interesting.  I'm done venting and I'll see ya around.

I totally agree with you on every single point. It disgusts me to no end to hear politicians taking advantage of this great tragedy so they can push their agenda. One of the fathers of a victim of Columbine came out and said that it isn't about gun control, it's about the sick state of this world. I get in quite a passion about this topic so sorry if I went off on a tangent. It's nice to know I follow some bloggers who agree with my standpoint.

I hope you're having a great week my dear!
