Out Of the Looking Glass, into the Pyre.
I see a lot of hate. In the eyes of my supposed peers, in the gestures of lost friends, in the furtive glances lovers lost throw at each other. This is to be expected. But what is stunning, agonizing even for one such as me, is to see people lashing out at those whom they've never met. Striking outward at people they don't know, cannot know. This vicious tendency towards destructive actions is something that has been commented on again and again, and exploited almost as often.
"Let us rise up tonight with a greater readiness. Let us stand with a greater determination. And let us move on in these powerful days, these days of challenge to make America what it ought to be. We have an opportunity to make America a better nation." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
