Saving Grace


Abject cowardice, abject shame belong to those that did not condemn the violence at the Capitol.  

Do not retaliate against those who were brave enough to brave the truth and state the truth.  

Just because cowards hide behind hate and fear, does not mean everyone are doormats to terrorists and will kowtow to them.  

People have different reasons for supporting who they support.

However, there are unacceptable acts of violence that are intolerable to the rule of law.  

To blanketly support someone without the distinction of integrity in ethical and nonviolent conduct, is to debase oneself to the lowest possible denominator, instead of holding someone to higher standards.  

Violent and unruly out of control behaviors become unhealthy for that someone and toxic for everyone.

Why not express support in a manner that is acceptable to the rule of law and acceptable to the Lord?  

Destroying your own out of fear and hate are acts of cowardice.  

The saving grace is in the ones that are brave enough to brave the truth and state it; and having the integrity and bravery to uphold the rule of law and the ideals of democracy.
