“Try to be patient, don’t forget to choose sides”

This is another short one that I just need to be out there.

The title of this weeks post comes from the song, “Nation of Heat” by singer/song writer Joe Pug. He is an artist that has meant a lot to me over the past few years, and listening to this song this week, it really struck a cord.

Every time I have sat down to write about the Uvalde shooting, it seems like another one has happened, and at this point I am too heartbroken to try and muster any words. So I will let Erik Ravelo do that instead. He is a Cuban artist that has a series of pieces called The Untouchables. You can find more on it here. This speaks more than I could hope to:

The picture of the art piece is a little girl crucified to the back of someone with a red sweatshirt, jeans, and is holding semi-automatic guns in both hands. If isn’t representative of America, I don’t know what is. For the life of me, I do not understand how Christians are okay with no gun reform, it is anti everything God is.
