Today’s tragedies are not a reason to jump on a soapbox to push your political agendas. But, I know the events make me feel helpless and I don’t like that.
The inevitable onslaught of mindless political pandering is expected. But, once your done reposting pointless outdated memes and sensationalist rehashed news … do me a favor and tag me when you come across a fundraiser or action that will be doing something towards covering funeral costs, grief counseling and medical bills .. that’s where I would like to share my support right now … and when the valid fundraiser start making their way across the facebook landscape I hope they are reshared and actually utilized with the same level of passion the gun control, anti government and religious memes are being passed on.
I spent 30 seconds researching into organizations that can and will actually do something to assist the families who were so totally damaged today. This is what little I can do at the moment.
