Prayers are not enough - Re: the Acceleration of Violent White Nationalism in the United States

in blog •  10 months ago 

yes, i've been spending a lot of time reflecting on this and i do think it boils down to the aggressive colonization of america via guns... americans are simply tied to their guns. it's not an excuse just more of a baseline understanding. i do think there would be a type of civil war if guns were ever banned. i do see some political leaders running for office saying we need to ban assault weapons and have more stringent laws and regulations in order to get guns... but, as you say, white women are raising these men and i think this is where it starts. in the home. in the mentality and heart-space.
i was very impressed that new zealand, after the mosque shooting, immediately banned guns. that is so encouraging! i just don't think it would happen in america.
i also hear ya when you say to live in a toxic culture without producing change is not a good choice -- for sure! i'm really trying to see how i, as a white woman, can step in and provide some healing in this culture with such a history and present-time of violence. prayers are included. thanks for your thoughts.
