I’m going to get serious for just a moment. This came about because I saw an app for people who are Conservatives/Republicans to find a safe place to dine out. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, but then, I also can’t believe it when total strangers gang up and terrorize people they have decided are bad and must be gotten rid of.. Because their political choices are different.
I never thought I’d see a day when people here were being attacked in public, shouted and screamed at until they fled a restaurant, barred from shops and eateries.
Below you’ll find a link to a great radio presentation of the science fiction story by Theodore Sturgeon, “Mr. Costello, Hero”. I’m presenting it as an example of a very frightening thing going on in our society right now, people labeling others as bad just because they have a different opinion. This has happened before… In Germany 1939.
I hope you will listen to it this radio show.
I hope you will still welcome all people into your world with an open heart and mind.
