When evil visited our beautiful City; we cried, we prayed, we hugged, we questioned,we came through stronger! Evil lost.

We are not promised tomorrow, so say what needs to be said...today!

Orlando - Named, The City Beautiful, many years ago.
Orlando - Named, The City Beautiful, many years ago.

When Evil Came to my Town

Yesterday...

Evil entered into my backyard, close to home, too close for comfort!

Yesterday we all cried, I cried.

Yesterday we all prayed, I prayed!

I will continue to pray, but

Today...

I am just angry!

Yes, you can be a Christian and you can be pissed-off, all at the same time.

It's allowed, we're only human, after all!

_______________________________________________

It is infuriating to me what Political Correctness has done and continues to do to us.

It has weakened us!

It has people; including acquaintances and loved ones, including the media, including the President of the United States, Barack Obama....scrambling to find something, anything tangible, to place all of the blame on, instead of calling it what it is!

Evil in the form of radical Islamists created the carnage in Benghazi...Paris...Fort Hood...San Bernardino and so on and so on and now, evil is responsible for the carnage in Orlando.

Guns, pipe bombs, box-cutters, machetes, knives, vehicles, improvised explosive devices, (basically anything and everything that they can get their wicked, wrong-doing, evil hands on) are tangible tools...a means utilized by all of these Evil doers, as they seek to conquer, maim, kill, destroy....they aren't picky!

Evil wins, when evil is ignored!

Evil thrives, when it is packaged up into little packages and labeled 'something else', 'anything else', 'other', 'unsolved'...as long as it is Politically Correct little tangible packages.

Every time these 'labeled' little packages are put away, closed off and ignored in some back storeroom, evil triumphs.

With each mislabeling, evil gains more of a stronghold!

~~~~~~~~~~

These individuals, these evil doers, have chosen the wrong path, a path far removed from Holy God and his Holy Word.

A path far removed from The Way, The Truth and The Life!

It is pure unadulterated evil and it is high time we start calling it what it is.....

for crying out Loud.

For crying out Loud!

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!

_______________________________________________

I am working on containing this anger.

In the meantime,

I will continue to pray for my City, the beautiful City of Orlando!

Still...Beautiful!

I will continue to pray for this Nation!

I will continue to pray for the World!

  • I am praying for the families of all those senselessly murdered and for the survivors of this latest massacre, to be able to move on with their lives, in as healthy a way as is humanly possible.
  • We cannot begin to understand their mental and physical pain, but God does!
  • I pray that if they do not already know Jesus Christ and have a personal relationship with him, they'll get to know him.

Also, for those on the path, far removed from God, I pray that they can be reached. I pray that their children can be reached, before another City awakens to such horrific News.

Holding on, in Faith....

Personally, I do not understand how anyone gets through the day to day or through these trying times that we are in, without it!

We must be resolute and unwavering in defeating evil, but a very important first step, is recognizing it and calling it by its name.

Evil abounds, but God is Ever-Present!










The City failed to recognize or call evil by its name! Another sad day!

It deeply saddens me that Orlando's Mayor, along with the City of Orlando, chose not to recognize Evil, nor call it by its name, but chose instead...to look to the past for something, anything 'tangible' to place all blame on.

They needed to make a sacrificial offering to please the Political Correctness crowd and so.....

they chose to place all blame, target all hate, toward a statue, one which has stood in Central Florida, in Orlando 'the City Beautiful' for over one hunded years.

In amazing, record-breaking time, the statue was dismantled and it is scheduled to be relocated to a cemetery. (so they say)

The statue's crime?

It has stood In Memoriam to fallen Confederate soldiers that lost their lives during the war between the North and the South.

- I need someone to put all of this, (erasing of History) into perspective and make some kind of sense out of it, because, I can't get there!

Once again, I find myself working on containing my anger, well aware that if every single piece of America's History is replaced or destroyed - renamed or banned.....

Evil will still exist, as it has since the beginning of time.

Once again, reminding myself that ignorance thrives and Evil abounds, but...


Orlando at night
Orlando at night

Orlando, the (still) beautiful, City!

...God is ever-present and good wins in the end!

  • This City still stands
  • This City still thrives
  • This City still shines

This City is STILL Beautiful!

      ....and now a harmless little group of people in a small church in Texas.

      An 18 month old baby, children, a pregnant mom, senior citizens, were all targeted...my heart hurts!

      Such evil!!! I'm a Believer and I believe that he and every other one of these murdering S.O.B.'s are getting their Just Due right about now.

      You don't want to know Wolf Blitzer (just another far left moron) He's actually a native WNY'er (I'm sorry to say) It's happening anywhere & everywhere with no forecast of stopping.

      Paula, I am so sorry that it has happened in New York again. Heartbreaking!

      I was listening to talk radio and the guy that broke in with the reports was Wolf Blitzer(sp?)(not sure who he is) and like I said, he eventually called it terrorism.

      My thoughts and prayers are with your Beautiful State! :-(

      a,b, Just so U know, they very quickly announced it was a terror attack. Mayor Blumberg's 1st. public comment called it a Terrorist attack. I believe they're finally understanding now that they simply cannot lie to the American public or babble B.S, trying to cover the TRUTH. "They" have damaged their credibility long enough & much too often. Long gone are the days they can treat us like we're all stupid, blind & deaf.

      I realize the exposure and the awareness of the people is so cramping their style of lying, deluding, blowing smoke. Such a pity all the corrupt bastard politicians must have to change their ways or get tossed out on their butts. We Americans have HAD IT! No more games. We are loaded for bear, from here on in. The poor victims & their loved ones....out for a bike ride, enjoying life and now, they're gone because of the insanity of savage terrorists. May they rest in peace.

      When the News broke that there was a pick-up truck plowing down bikers and pedestrians in New York today, the next sentence was, this is not terrorism.

      Then there was another report that shots had been fired and it looked as if this was a case of road rage, not terrorism!

      Now, as I am leaving my office, I am hearing that the Terrorist was shouting Allah Akbar, as he murdered innocent people with a large vehicle, then began shooting at them as well.

      Why is terrorism always so quickly ruled out and why is something else always instantly blamed?

      My prayers are with the City!

      Thanks for sharing this Paula.

      When you consider all of these Facts...it gives you some sense as to why so much effort goes into getting something/anything to stick to Trump.

      Remember when liberals saw the light?

      Oh wait... their eyes are always closed to the truth.

      ab A friend sent this to me. I have not one single doubt that you will enjoy it as much as so many have!!

      "Remember when Donald Trump was business partners with the Russian government and his company got 53 million from the Russian government investment fund called Rusnano that was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as "Putin's Child"?

      Oh wait that wasn't Trump it was John Podesta.

      Remember when Donald Trump received 500 thousand for a speech in Moscow and paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies?

      Oh wait that was Bill Clinton.

      Remember when Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of US uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State which gave control of it to Rosatom the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation?

      Oh wait that was Hillary Clinton.

      Remember when Donald Trump lied about that and said he wasn't a part of approving the deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his emails were leaked showing he did lie about it?

      Oh wait that was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.

      Remember when Donald Trump got 145 million dollars from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians?

      Oh wait that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

      Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian Oligarchs like the chairman of a company that's part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster, the wife of the mayor of Moscow, and a close pal of Putins?

      Oh wait that was the Clinton Foundation.

      Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records?

      Oh wait that was Hillary Clinton.

      Remember when Donald Trump told Mitt Romney that the 80s called and it wanted its Russian policy back. The Cold War is over?

      Oh wait that was President Obama.

      So it is the day after the OSU Hit and Slash (Evil One Hits all he can with a car and then Evil One Slashes all he can with a knife) and I'm still hearing that ''Gun Violence" took place!

      Thank God a Police Officer was on the scene and because he actually had a gun, some 'Gun Justice' took place, before Evil One could find a tire iron or whatever else was at his disposal, to follow through on his sadistic mission...to take innocent lives!

      I do not plan to comment every single time these evil, radical Islamic terrorists attack,whether it is here in our Homeland or abroad, but I will call out our weak Leaders, when they skirt around the real problem all day, every day and never call it what it is!
