another rant

so much going on in the world
 such craziness

 last week
 i was going to do a silly post 
about
 coffee cups 

the insanity 
of 
the argument 
against
 starbucks red cups
 finally seemed to be forgotten 
when the horror 
of 
terrorism in paris
 pushed it from the top of the list
 of 
whines
posts
 on
 facebook 

the terrorism wasn't enough
on its own
 no
 it brought out 
all the nasty 
all the bigots
the racists
 those who are 
anti anything and anyone
 not 
like them
 not
 embracing their values 
no matter 
how ugly
 those values may be

it gave me
 a good feeling 
to
 unfriend
 some of those spewing their ignorance 
by
reposting
ignorant statements
others of their ilk posted

enough

lets look toward this week
a time of thanksgiving
a time for families 
for friends
to gather
to be grateful
to live in a country 
founded 
on
 religious freedom

or 
have 'we' forgotten how we came to be?
