You have to get up pretty early in the morning to make stuff up like this.
League City Chamber of Commerce is going to honor our Vets, many who may have PTSD. According to the Mayo Clinic, a clinic not based upon the medical teachings of our lord Jesus Christ and the Bible:
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
What can be better than having a fireworks display to honor those with PTSD? How about having the event at a gun club? Well that is what they really intend to do. (not the fireworks) Maybe they will raffle off an AR15, the military weapon used in combat as well as the gun of choice to kill kids in school, churches, parades, dance clubs, and concerts.
Honoring our Veterans is honorable. That is a good event sponsored by the Chamber and they should be commended for it but for fucks sakes, at a gun club? Really? For many who have seen the horrors of war maybe highlighting the weapons used to create the horrors or war isn’t exactly the best venue.
I began this post as satire for Satire Sunday but it is just too disturbing to make fun of. Praise to the Chamber and to our Veterans but Jesus, please read the room next time.
