It’s been a month since my last post. You know, that one where I ranted for and against gun rights. That one where I stood with one foot on each side of the line.
You know, that one where I said we’d never ever come together to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.
Yeah, that one.
I stand by that post, still, but want to say a few things in follow up.
First off, thanks to those of you that shared the post around to others. It was a difficult post to share. Not just because I filled it with angry expletives, but because it’s a hard place to stand. We’re filled with extremists on both sides (I often go to extremes), and the common sense middle ground is pretty much a no fly zone.
About that, though…
A second thanks to everyone who reached out and had positive and negative things to say. As in, you agreed with some things, disagreed with others, but the bottom line is you started a dialogue with me, or made the offer to talk in the future. It’s what we need to do. It’s what we have to do.
And here’s the “about that” portion… why can’t we extrapolate that to the masses? Don’t get me wrong, I had a few nice messages telling me what a fucking idiot I was (from both sides of this coin, mind you), but nowhere near as many of those as I did people sharing, agreeing, and reaching out in a positive manner.
Just… I don’t know… why can’t we do that on a grander scale?
Anyway, Brownies, that’s all for now.
