This is seriously heartbreaking.

A survivor of the recent horrific mass killing in California spoke with the media and the account he’s given of the events that transpired has taken the Internet by storm in the most heartbreaking way.

Twelve people were murdered in cold blood in the massacre at an establishment in Thousand Oaks, California. Twenty-one others where injured during the shooting.

“My son thought it was a joke, and so I pulled him down, got some cover,” the man explained.

“I looked up and [the suspect] was moving to the right, and he shot the front … the front doorman, bouncer; just a young man,” the survivor wept. “And then, then he shot the cashier; just a young girl.”

The man said that the suspect began moving again and noted that the suspect wasn’t looking in his direction or at his son.

“He didn’t say anything at all, he just started shooting,” the survivor added. “I should have stayed … but I was worried about my boy.

“I should have stayed,” he sobbed. “I apologize to anybody who got hurt, or passed, I’m sorry. They’re all young. I’m 56; I’ve lived life — they’re all young. This shouldn’t have happened to them.”

This man has absolutely no reason whatsoever to feel guilty or ashamed of himself for the way he acted in this horrifying situation. A man’s first priority is to protect his own family, and that’s precisely what he did. It’s refreshing to see a father care so much for his son and do his duty to protect and watch over him. This is what a good father looks like.

The only person to blame for this tragedy is the shooter himself. Each one of us is responsible for our own wickedness before God. This individual made a conscious choice to carry out an evil act and murder fellow image bearers of the Lord. No one else is responsible for that crime.

In a just society, a murderer would be given the death penalty. Let’s hope justice is served in this case.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
