@mirahwood Good point. I have to go now. But know that people are listening to you. @SamHarrisOrg@mirahwood I couldn't agree more. My heart aches for those families. It must be heart-rending to live through that as family & friends.@mirahwood I think the President is waiting for more data before he comments.@mirahwood But I want the concept of a hate crime to mean something very specific. If it's applied to everything, then it means nothing.@mirahwood It feels personal to you because of who the victim is. I get that.@mirahwood Unfortunately there are vicious murders all over our country because of our fucked up culture.@mirahwood It's a process, not a switch. And I believe very strongly that Barack Obama has done much to move toward a better future.@mirahwood I know and I am so sorry. I'm trying to teach my boys to be better and point that out to anyone who will listen.@mirahwood I know some will argue that hate itself shows some mental illness.@mirahwood I think it's worth waiting to get the data to see if he was mentally ill.@mirahwood What is the the line of distinction between the actions driven by thoughtful hate vs the insane actions of the mentally ill?@mirahwood One senseless death at the hands of a hateful and likely insane man is too many, but I'm not sure if the president should respondBREAKING: Russian President Vladimir Putin announces a cease-fire in eastern Ukraine midnight Saturday
