With the heat of a thousand suns

Never before in my life have I hated, loathed, and wanted to punish an individual and a group of people as much as I do now.

Their insatiable greed for more money, more power, and oblivion to anyone but themselves, coupled with negligence and cruelty has gotten us to where we are. I'm tired of asking...begging...for people to be treated decently and humanely and with justice and equity regardless of their color, gender, national origin, etc.
