THE DAY THE FLAG CAME DOWN IN SOUTH CAROLINA

As the confederate flag is taken down from the Capitol grounds of Charleston, South Carolina, it’s important to honor the “Charleston9”.

This event shouldn’t be remembered by the perpetrator.

The nine victims should be honored and remembered … by name.

“On the evening of June 17, 2015, a mass shooting took place at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, United States.

Nine people were killed, including the senior pastor, state senator Clementa C. Pinckney; a tenth victim survived.

The congregation is one of the United States’ oldest black churches and has long been a site for community organization around civil rights.

I’ve been seeing way too much coverage of the terrorist rather than of the victims, which isn’t right, so I made this. Went more realistic to get more of a resemblance, and all information is based off what I could find on the internet. Hopefully it’s all accurate, if something isn’t, please tell me.

Such a horrible event.”

REST IN PEACE

Jon Stewart ….. “I Got Nothing for You”!!

Choked-Up Jon Stewart Says He Can’t Tell Jokes After Charleston Massacre
Too much to handle for the funnyman.

“I have one job, and it’s a pretty simple job,” Jon Stewart said on “The Daily Show” on the night after the #CharlestonShooting “I come in in the morning, and we look at the news and I write jokes about it.”

But that’s not what happened last night.

What follows is a heartfelt appeal to America on the issue of race and our strangely inconsistent application of outrage. He noted that two wars and trillions were spent to fight a force far less dangerous that domestic shootings and American racial terror — Islamic radicalism. He would go on to highlight some of the lower-level forms of abuse, from the confederate flag over South Carolina to the residual heritage of slavery.

“We have roads named after confederate generals.

Black people have to drive on roads named after those who would prevent them from driving.

That’s insanity.” As America renews its debate over the use of Confederate imagery,and its pernicious effects on black society, his point is an urgent one, indeed.

~~Daily Show’s Jon Stewart on Charleston shooting~~

‘This was a terrorist attack’

~~Published on Jun 18, 2015~~

The Daily Show host Jon Stewart has slammed America’s response to the mass shooting in a South Carolina church, predicting that nothing would be done in the wake of a “terrorist attack” that left nine people dead.

In a sombre opening to a show he promised would contain no jokes, Stewart said some people were already working hard to discount the idea that racism was the motive behind the massacre.

Prior to introducing his guest – Nobel peace prize-winner Malala Yousafzai – Stewart told viewers: “I have nothing other than just sadness that once again we have to peer into the abyss of the depraved violence that we do to each other, and the nexus of a just gaping racial wound that will not heal but we pretend doesn’t exist.

“I’m confident, though, that by acknowledging it, by staring into that and seeing it for what it is, we still won’t do jackshit.

“Yeah. That’s us.”

The reluctance to label domestic shootings of this kind as terrorism, he went on, led to what he called a “disparity of response between when we think people that are foreign are going to kill us and us killing ourselves”.

“If this had been what we thought was Islamic terrorism … we invaded two countries and spent trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives, and now fly unmanned death machines over, like, five or six different countries …

“Nine people. Shot in a church. What about that?

Eh. What are you gonna do?

Crazy is as crazy is, right?”

The media response had been too slow to acknowledge the culture that made such violence possible, Stewart said: “I heard someone on the news say, a tragedy has visited this church. This wasn’t a tornado. This was racist. This was a guy with a Rhodesia badge on his sweater … This one is black and white. There’s no nuance here.

“And we’re going to keep pretending: I don’t get it, what happened, there’s one guy lost his mind. We are steeped in that culture in this country and we refuse to recognize it, and I cannot believe how hard people are working to discount it.”

Stewart pointed to what he called the “racial wallpaper” of South Carolina, where a confederate flag continues to be flown within the grounds of the capitol building: “The confederate flag flies over South Carolina. And the roads are named for confederate generals.

“And the white guy’s the one who feels like his country’s being taken away from him.”

Charleston Church Shooting: White Gunman Kills 9 At Historic Black Church

A heartbroken nation’s tension turned to mourning Thursday (June 18) afternoon as news broke that the gunman in an attack on a Charleston, South Carolina, church had been arrested, and the identities of his nine victims were released.

A white man entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church during a weekly Bible study meeting and opened fire around 9 p.m. Wednesday. Eight people were found shot to death at the scene, police said. Two others were transported to a hospital, where one later died.

Six women and three men were killed. The church’s pastor, state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, was among those who died. The other victims are Tywanza Sanders, Cynthia Hurd, Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Myra Thompson, Ethel Lance, Rev. Daniel Simmons, Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor and Susie Jackson.

“The only reason someone could walk into a church and shoot people praying is out of hate,” said Charleston Mayor Joe Riley at a news conference. “It is the most dastardly act that one could possibly imagine.”

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’
