Our world needs superheroes. Instead, we’re plagued with villains. If Wonder Woman were here, she would stop terrorists in their tracks.
Since this is an election year, every little thing that happens in America gets used as propaganda. For this campaign or against that one.
And when the big things happen? You know, like a hundred people getting shot in a night club? The politicians are crass enough to use that as a stepping stone for their platform.
Terror and Terrorism
I’ve been in a car accident. I’ve been in several almost accidents. What I felt in those moments that stretched into endlessness? Terror.
And it wasn’t very pleasant.
Maybe some of you get an adrenaline rush from it.
And I understand the rush that accompanies being dropped from a hundred feet above the ground only to be snapped back at seemingly the last moment. I’ve done it. It’s called Geronimo.
You know why that sort of terror is okay? Because I chose to inflict it on myself.
A terrorist on the other hand never asks permission. Or forgiveness for that matter.
Terrorism is the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes (according to dictionary.com)
Wonder Woman stops violence in its tracks. Her bracelets send bullets back at the shooters. Her lasso forces the truth out of them.
In short, there’s no intimidating her. And that’s what we need in this day and age.
Vote Wonder Woman
I avoid all things political. This is something WW and I have in common.
But enough is enough.
We could use someone dedicated to fighting for right in the current political climate. Someone who doesn’t shudder and hide when a violent act of terror is rained on innocent people. Someone whose motives serve others rather than themselves.
She won’t stand up and push to pass new laws that infringe on the rights of citizens. No call to ban guns (although she doesn’t need them to fight crime – lucky her) from WW. It’s not in her nature to look at the victims and make some statement about their guilt or innocence.
We’re all guilty of something. No one deserves to be gunned down in the middle of a night out.
It would be nice to have a leader who stood up and said, “This has to stop.”
If only we could dial up the Justice League or The Avengers.
But then the media would scream about vigilante justice.
But where is the justice for these terrorists? Who will stop them from spreading terror?
I vote Wonder Woman.
If only she weren’t just a fictional character.
