Virginia Tech Shooting Kills at Least 22

We were occupying Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office when we saw this come across CNN.

Maybe people would get the idea that violence isn’t the answer when we stop using it as a foreign policy solution.

The shooter killed himself, no word on the motivation for the killings yet.

Our thoughts are with the folks at VT today, just as they are with the people in Iraq.

    Can we really stop this? How are we supposed to halt violence on our homefront when we are doing the same exact thing overseas. This is American hipocracy at its finest. Monkey see monkey do. A philosophy of “do as I say not as I do” will never work out. The American government needs to set the standard and example of non violence before we can expect its citizens to do the same.

    We can stop it, we just have to stop seeing the violence as different. A life in Virginia is no more important than a life in Iraq, Colombia, the Congo, no matter what justification you use. To claim their are moral, political or economic justifications for taking a life – one by one or en masse – is a wrong.

    We have to break out of these mindsets that lead us to believe otherwise, or cause us to be more horrified by shootings at Virginia Tech then we are about shootings in Baghdad University. Otherwise it will continue. We aren’t powerless, but we have to understand the causes of the problem rather than treating the symptoms.

    War, Killing and Violence is self-contradictory to the principle and mission on which our great nation was founded….THE PURSUIT OF
    LIFE, LIBERTY & HAPPINESS.

    War has no place in civil society or civilization in its true sense.

    Peace is every step and we must aspire to be at peace within to see peace without…in all our thoughts, words and actions.
