R.I.P. Heather Heyer

“If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”

By Hook Or By Book

Heather Heyer was the 32 year-old paralegal who died yesterday when a man (I’m not going to name him) drove his car into protesters in Charlottesville. Her mother, Susan Bro, shared this about the daughter she is so proud of:

She always had a very strong sense of right and wrong, she always, even as a child, was very caught up in what she believed to be fair. Somehow I almost feel that this is what she was born to be, is a focal point for change. I’m proud that what she was doing was peaceful, she wasn’t there fighting with people.

Please let’s not have the death of this courageous young woman be in vain. Her last words on her Facebook page are:

If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.

    Out of this tragedy Americans have shown the world their distain for racism and as a Brit I am proud to see such a huge out cry against evil; just to add Hitler lost the war and they took his statues down. You don’t get to keep your statutes that’s not right..General Lee and all the confederate generals were 2000% for slavery, a cruel and evil practice. They lost. There is an American Flag now to show Union…These statues and the confederate flag have no place in American.
