ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov.17

Someone , on Face Book, told of a person calling out Heil Hitler, Heil Trump at a performance of " Fiddler on the Roof. " I commented that I was frightened by this kind of report. I thought about my comment for the rest of the day. I changed my mind and I feel better about my decision. If I were near enough to this person, I would throw myself at him and hope that someone would join me. I would let myself be crazed. Why should I be the one afraid. I am not a brave person. I don't confront people.But for this ,I would.  I don't know what happened to the coward who called out . Was he arrested? Did he get charged with disturbing an event ?I don't even know if the story is true. But it made me think. And I strongly feel now,that I would have the power to attack this person if that happened where I was and if I were of a body length of him. I am not afraid. I am worried about our country , where anyone could feel empowered enough to feel it's acceptable to go to a public place and call out words that should be outlawed.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
