What we’ve become

The all too predictable news about a family in TX, shot dead by the man they asked to stop shooting rifles in his front yard, is a sad reminder of the state of our culture. Offend someone, get shot. The cartoon below says it perfectly. What a terrible society we’ve become.

I used to think that folks saying they would leave the country fleeing gun culture, or abortion laws, or expensive health care, or the surveillance state, were over-reacting. Now I’m not so sure. If I were starting out in adult life, starting a family, I can think of quite a few places that would make more sense to live.

I want to be clear, I love America and appreciate the life and opportunity I’ve had here. But the America I experienced is disappearing, and this new version is…not good.
