Coming to a City Near You

Rant-(website)Folks, I wish the world would become a calm, peaceful place just long enough for me to get back to writing optimistic and uplifting blogs. I really do. But unfortunately, the crazies out there keep grabbing the headlines, and when they do I feel obliged to comment.

Especially when the topic is, in my view, one of the most pressing social issues facing us today; lethally-armed, military-trained, and force-sanctioned civilian police once tasked with “protecting us” who, because of their increasing paranoia & fear, are at risk of someday becoming our greatest local threat. It’s already happening in the States. And, as conditions likewise change in Canada, this sad decline in our peace services may eventually work its way north.

It’s not too late to change things. There is something we can do. I have a few thoughts on this.

See Coming to a City Near You in the Ramblings section of this blog.

About wordswithbrad

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
