The Audacity

This was one of six displays of graffiti that appeared in my neighborhood sometime in the early morning of October 30th. Mark called me in disbelief on his way to work after passing a builders' sign that had been given the same treatment.
A few years ago, this would have made me furious. But it just made me sad. Sad that someone has so much hate in them as to wish death on people, sad that our tranquil community's bubble had been burst, sad that children saw those words on their way to school.
The most saddening thing, even in the light of this historical election, was realizing how far we have not come.
Change sounds pretty good to me.

Ignorance is such a disturbing thing. I'm sorry this happened in your neighborhood and even at all.

I'm truly sickened.
It's bad enough that someone would harbor this thought in their brain, but then to ruin other's mind...

This makes me cry. How can anyone be so cruel? I don't understand.
