There has been for a very long time a violence epidemic in America, and the world. Violence of any kind especially hate crimes is a threat to our very existence as human beings. What, it's the new waive to be an assaulter and act out against what we either don't agree with or feel guilty about or detest.
Every life matters and HATE CRIMES are the evil effects of our distorted views. There is no excuse for taking a life, it's not a video game these are real people who will never walk this earth.
This is not only is a pandemic year, it's a year that started with a horrific acts on January 6th, the celebration of the Epiphany, bet some of the people who participated attaching Congress put on a different face when they visit their centers of worship.
We may not agree but we should agree to coexist without these vermin attacks.
