Pain shared is pain halved; families touched by opioids not alone

To The Daily Sun,

Behind every person who dies in the opioid epidemic, there is a family left behind. While nothing I can ever say or do can take away your pain, I hear you. I hear your anguish and suffering. I sit at funerals with you and share your tears. Pain shared is pain halved. You are not alone. I hold all of you in my heart and prayers.

More than one side wanted mayhem; it takes two to tango

To The Daily Sun,

In response to Mr. Crosby’s letter ("only one side wanted violence"):

Anybody who believes that only once side at Charlottesville, VA was intent on violence is naïve, deliberately lying or part of the dissemination of propaganda! Remember IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO!

I do not support “supremacist” of ANY color — white (calling themselves “Unite the Right”) or black (calling themselves “Black Lives Matter”)! Since both supremacists groups were active in Charlottesville, President Trump was quite correct to condemn ALL sides!

So the “alt-right” planned a peaceful protest — and it could have been exactly that if the enemedia had showed up and said “here they are” and gone away, without giving them the attention they wanted. And — IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO — it could have been peaceful if “counter protesters” had not decided to attack them.  

Oh, but they were carrying wearing helmets, carrying shields and bats? Who taught them to be prepared for attacks? THE “LEFT”! The “alt-right” are good students of recent history: since now-President Trump won the Republican Party ticket in 2016, the left has gone out of its way to attack peaceful — from Trump rallies, to shutting down free speech (speakers they don’t agree with) the left has been violent — and the enemedia, failing to hold them accountable, blamed the victims!

So the event in Charlottesville could have been peaceful — except the police followed orders and herded them into an area where they were surrounded by, and could be attacked by the violent leftists. Not so?   (http://tinyurl.com/y8jjc9ln)  Charlottesville police have come forward to tell the truth: they were ordered to bring the rival groups together and then take no steps to prevent the ensuing mayhem. What if the police had not followed those orders? This would have been a peaceful protest and a mere footnote in history.

The enemedia puts all the focus on “alt-right,” and if you have no other source for information, you could be lead to believe that only one side wanted mayhem. IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO! Fact: ANTIFA (actual fascists in action!) and Black Lives Matter attacked the “alt-right!” Not so, again?  (http://tinyurl.com/y7xgbdq6)  It would have been a peaceful protest, a footnote in history if the “alt-right” had not been herded into the awaiting VIOLENT “counter protesters.”

Then there is the issue of a driver who ended up killing one of the protesters. Was he attacking this event? Or was he in fear for his life (http://tinyurl.com/yclnmtco) and acting in self-defense? What do you do when violent protesters start beating on your car? I found it very interesting that the POLICE do not think he was acting maliciously!

This event could have been peaceful, a footnote in history — but that would not support the left’s determination to bring about martial law. Not playing both ends against the middle would not have advanced their agenda to turn the United States of America into the United Socialist States of America under the New World Order/One World Government controlled by the UN.
