The March for Our Lives. Top of Mind Things I Think.
Let there be no misunderstanding. I am proud of all the people worldwide, especially the children, who gathered yesterday to make their voices heard regarding gun control. I just wonder if their efforts are misguided? As I stated in my February 18th post: “I will not comment on why a 19-year old possessed a AR-15 rifle, groups of gun activists or gun control, nor our divided political system. What I will comment on is school security. Don’t get me wrong, I put no blame on the high school administrators where last week’s massacre took place.” My bewilderment relates to the ability of someone, anyone, able to enter a school with little security in place. I only wish that the protest would have been more focused on school safety than gun control. With respect to the 2nd Amendment it is time for more controls to be put in place when purchasing a gun, but what would have been the difference if the sick 19 year-old had walked into Stoneman Douglas High School with a shotgun instead of an AR-15? The importance of security and locking down our schools is still way more important than gun control.
Today is Palm Sunday. Just as a reminder, Palm Sunday is the final Sunday of Lent, the beginning of Holy Week, and commemorates the triumphant arrival of Christ in Jerusalem, days before he was crucified. I know all of you knew that.
The NCAA tournament committee: nice job seeding Loyola-Chicago 11th. The Ramblers destroyed Kansas State last night and go on to next weekend’s Final Four. Yes, the 11th seed.
Juventus, who has won the Italian League (Serie A) a whopping 33 times, will play at Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz stadium on August 1st. That will be one hell of a summer party.
Ponce Inlet, located just south of Daytona Beach – one of the better beaches I have been on. Relatively quiet, flat, and of course a beach bar or two.
Not that I have a deep understanding of basketball strategy, but what the heck was Florida State’s Leonard Hamilton thinking in the last two minutes of last night’s NCAA Elite Eight knockout game? Weird tactics.
Next weekend: the Final Four, baseball season opens, Major League Soccer in full force and Easter Sunday. Welcome to Spring.
Adios and have a Funday Sunday!
