He wanted Revenge… 11/5/2017 Sutherland Springs, Texas

He was angry… Angry that his wife turned him in… Angry that he got kicked out of the Air Force with a dis-honorable… Angry with people that he felt were against him, including children… The young man was an angry person in mind, heart and soul… He made a choice, a choice that changed my life forever…. and took the lives of 26 innocents at a small church in Texas…

How did this happen, why did it happen and who is responsible… Those questions will never be answered…. I know for a fact, we will never get the answers and we will have to accept what happened…

You ask how I can say this… Because on a hot night in Big Springs, Texas in 1967 … A 13-year-old died at the hands of her mother and father… He was in the Air Force, the mother was a stay at home mom and both swore they were christians….

A baby had just been born, that was not of my dad’s blood… He knew he had been betrayed while he was in Vietnam… This man, whose own life was torture for him, because he could not control the adult in him… He could not follow the laws of his man-made religion and he could not accept that his wife cheated on him… How he handled that seed of hate in his soul, is what took the life of Margie at 13… All because of mental illness…

I have to accept that what my parents did is in their DNA and they CHOSE to act on it, instead of seeking legitimate help with psychiatry, instead they turned to man-made religion, pushed by people who had their own agenda… An agenda based on ignorance and fantasy… An ignorance that has cost millions of lives, as all wars, lead back to religious rhetoric….

As long as people chose to turn their back on the mentally ill, their will be more lives lost… As long as people do not accept that religion is a DNA imprint that they can make an intelligent choice about… Their will be more deaths, their will be more lives lost…

Just because you believe in religion and you honestly believe there is no alternative to your way of thinking… So is it for the LGBT community…. It is in their DNA, just as is your religion…

Life is always about choice… Your DNA is just the beginning of your choices… Be it religion or be it LGBT… You are hard-wired…. I can no more expect you to give up your man-made religion, than I can expect a LGBT person to become straight… It’s in your DNA….

It’s what you do with those choices, shows the kind of human you really are…. Judging others should never be among the choices… You do not have a right… No one does… Including me… You either accept people or you keep them out of your life… It is after all about choices…

All any of us can really do, is be honest, sincere and free to live our lives the way we want… Your choices are not mine and mine are not yours…

It’s what we do with our lives and how we impact others… knowing for every choice we make, it impacts more than just ourselves… It is learning to live with those choices that will make or break you…

My birth family chose man-made religion over me… That is their choice, that is their right… My birth family chose to lie for decades, and not just my parents, but aunts, uncles, grandmother and siblings… All because they chose to hide behind man-made religion and in all reality, they were cowards… They never owned their lives… They wasted their time on earth… They tried to deny life to Margie…

That young man killed 26 people, because he chose to act on his hate… He chose to act on his mental illness and in the end, took his own life, because of cowardess… My birth family did the same…

The Air Force covered up records, denied facts and put lives at risk in 2017…

Mine was no different in 1967… or my children on Vance AFB 1981….
