Let’s just get this out there: I am by no means an expert. This is just one man’s humble opinion. But, as a nation, I’m slightly disturbed when I look at the reactions to tragedy lately. What I see is a nation fearful of all the possibilities. A nation fearful without researching the issues, willing to give up rights with no regard to reason.
This all started with September 11th. Everyone, shocked by the terror attacks, wanted revenge and the feeling of security. In response, we started wars and gave up freedoms. All for a good cause, but all very reactionary.
