Giving Thanks and Flying Cars

By A.P. Dil­lon

The ris­ing of the oceans was sup­posed to slow.
The planet was sup­posed to heal.
We were promised fly­ing cars…

Yes we can!

On this Thanks­giv­ing Day, we’re sup­posed to take stock of how blessed we are. We’re sup­posed to be thank­ful for our health, for our fam­i­lies and for what we have. Sadly, some in our nation are thank­ful’ for what they took from oth­ers through an abused def­i­n­i­tion of ‘justice’.

Mostly peace­ful’ protests, except for those who were injured or wounded.

This is why we can­not have nice things. These tweets con­tain a scant few of the images and video cap­tured. Twit­ter is lit­tered with them.

Burn­ing cars, burn­ing and loot­ing stores, tear gas, riot­ing. I hope the main­stream media is pleased with them­selves. Cov­er­age I watched for a brief time was bor­der­line glee filled.

That sen­ti­ment of being pleased with them­selves goes dou­ble for the shame­less media atten­tion seek­ers like the North Car­olina based ‘Moral Mon­day’. Nice job pulling stunts like at Wal-​Mart stores.

What does Wal-​mart have to do with this? How is this seek­ing jus­tice exactly? How is this ‘moral’? It’s not. It’s exploita­tion of a situation.

How many of the ‘peace­ful’ pro­test­ers were among those clean­ing up the next day?

How many of the media who cir­cled like vul­tures put down their cam­eras and pick­ing up brooms?

Take heart. All is not lost, as evi­denced by those who did come out the next morn­ing to clean up in Fer­gu­son and else­where. Vol­un­teers even came out to the Cake shop from the tweet above and helped the owner get things back in order.

This Thanks­giv­ing, we should be thank­ful cit­i­zens like those clean­ing up in Fer­gu­son exist. Per­haps, by clean­ing up yet again, they are the ones truly protesting.

On this Thanksgiving Day, we’re supposed to take stock of how blessed we are. We’re supposed to be thankful for our health, for our families and for what we have. Sadly, some in our nation are thankful’ for what they took from others through an abused definition of ‘justice’.

‘Mostly peaceful’ protests, except for those who were injured or  wounded.

This is why we cannot have nice things. These tweets contain a scant few of the images and video captured. Twitter is littered with them.

Burning cars, burning and looting stores, tear gas, rioting.   I hope the mainstream media is pleased with themselves.  Coverage I watched for a brief time was borderline glee filled.

That sentiment of being pleased with themselves goes double for the shameless media attention seekers like the North Carolina based ‘Moral Monday’.  Nice job pulling stunts like at Wal-Mart stores.

What does Wal-mart have to do with this? How is this seeking justice exactly? How is this ‘moral’?  It’s not. It’s exploitation of a situation.

How many of the ‘peaceful’ protesters were among those cleaning up the next day?

How many of the media who circled like vultures put down their cameras and picking up brooms?

Take heart. All is not lost, as evidenced by those who did come out the next morning to clean up in Ferguson and elsewhere. Volunteers even came out to the Cake shop from the tweet above and helped the owner get things back in order.

This Thanksgiving, we should be thankful citizens like those cleaning up in Ferguson exist.  Perhaps, by cleaning up yet again, they are the ones truly protesting.
