How does a nation react when 49 of their citizens are murdered? Do we start implementing new gun control laws or do we simply call for a moment of silent prayer? Over the past few days I have seen people offer prayers for the victims and their families. I believe in the power of prayer but I also believe in the part of the Bible that says faith without works is dead. We can’t keep mumbling prayers or having moments of silence. We have got to do something. What citizen needs a machine gun? Why are we allowed to purchase guns that are only suitable for war? At this point we are beyond shocked we should be enraged. We can no longer simply offer silent prayer we have to do something or we will be right back here again.

Erin Andrews is a celebrity, but she is also a victim. She was recorded getting out of the shower in a hotel room by a stalker. He manipulated the peephole on her door and recorded her. The tape is on the Internet forever. She is suing the hotel and yesterday the hotel’s attorney took an interesting approach. He asked her about how her career and income has increased since the incident. He listed the endorsement deals that she has acquired. So where is he going with this line of questioning? Is he saying she has benefited from the tape or is he saying that her career has not been negatively impacted? Both thoughts are equally repugnant. Let’s look at what Andrews did. She checked into a hotel and took a shower. That’s it. We all have done it and once you give your hotel room the cursory look around you put the lock on the door and foolishly feel safe. Andrews is a sportscaster, game show host, celebrity, but more importantly she a woman who has been victimized by a stalker, and when you listen to the current line of questioning you wonder will she be victimized by the system.

In 2012 Donald Trump embraced birtherism. He questioned the President’s citizenship and he was invited on the major networks (NBC and Fox embraced him) to share his claims. The Republican candidates including Mitt Romney came to New York to kiss his rink and hopefully get his endorsement. Very few of them challenged him on the birther issue. When he announced his run for the presidency this past June he insulted the Hispanic community. He labeled some of them as rapist and murders and he said some might be good people. Some candidates rejected his harsh rhetoric, but others stayed silent. Still in awe of the Trump brand and the chance that once he parks his circus car he might toss them a bone. So yesterday when he struck out at John McCain he could not have foreseen the universal disdain that he is receiving. Trump a man who received 4 deferments had the nerve to challenge a former POW who was held captive for over 5 years. Trump has declared that McCain was captured and he likes people who were not captured. So why did this strike such a strident cord? Could it be that this is the first time he has gone after someone who the majority see as a “True American”? Sadly, there are still people in this country who truly believe the President was born in Kenya, and if you follow that line of thinking Trump was regarded as a truth teller. There is also a group of people who believe illegal immigrants are potential criminals, but you would be hard pressed to find too many people that would agree with his characterization of a real American, John McCain.

This is not the typical fight that goes viral. Unfortunately far too often we see women fighting online, but the child of one of the women becomes an active participant in the fight, and when a customet tells him to stop the boy steps to her. This is sad on so many levels.
