Boston Businesses Boarding Up Just in Case People Riot
You hate to see this in our Country, or I should say, I hate to see it anyway. I shouldn't speak for other people.
According to a story from Boston.com, storefronts have been boarded up in preparation for violent outbursts and protests over the election results.
The report states that business owners in Downtown Crossing and the Back Bay are nervous because of the protests this past Summer over the killing of George Floyd,
Here's my two cents, for whatever it's worth. I was talking to a friend of mine and we were talking about what has really impacted our lives over the past four years. What is it that has made us the most upset. Both of us were unanimous in our responses. The unrest and fighting among family and friends over politics.
It is our right as Americans to cast our vote for whomever sits in the White House. It is also our right to speak up and say whatever we want about the candidate that we have chosen. Thank goodness for that. I would not want to live in a country that suppresses our right to speak. Having said that, the price tag for hurting our own families and friends is very high.
To quote my Mother who was a peace-maker over all, "I don't want to fight anymore." If there was a box for "PEACE," that's the box I would check over any candidate. I can't be alone on that.
So, on this election day 2020, I wish for Peace. May you all have your voices heard in a peaceful way. And don't throw stuff if you lose. GAWD!
