In support of the First

I would guess Rhetoric has never been listed as a cause of death.

Discourse whether kind or not has neither been.

Words can sting and bite.

Humiliation a sickening sport of bullies.

But for all the bites and stings words cause,

No one I know has had surgery because of it.

In fact, a boiling kettle will find relief by just tipping the lid

And letting the steam out.

And when the reporters and politicians do not like today's rhetoric,
what better way to argue than to say that today's rhetoric hurt those poor people.

But the first did not lead to all this.
The first allows us in the US to have an opinion and express it.
I am saddened  by this senseless outburst by a sick person.
I am equally saddened some will rush to judge innocent people
even if it is their right.
As I state my viewpoint and opinion, I am proud it is a right.
As is prayer,
And I pray for the victims and families.
