RAINBOW FAMILY GATHERINGS: Unofficial Community for Rainbow Family
Thanks for the info, Tok. So sad; and I'm so angry at the gun culture that has overcome the country, spilling down to our gatherings. This appears to be the proverbial lone crazed gunman. But there are a lot of people who bring guns to gatherings. There are a lot of people who live in readiness for Mad Max days to come; that is a prevailing belief in this country. So brave, peaceful Rainbows bleed and die trying to stop gun-insane madness. Oh, damn. I'm worried to hear who died; who's in critical condition; who's hurt.
The Dead video was from Donna Louise; isn't she a cool Sister! And so good to see you here, old friend. Thank you for bringing us this bad news; you know we needed to know. OCALA and ACOLA have had their (our) problems, but no one asked for this. Could you post this discussion on the Forum where more people will see it? I think it can be done with cut and paste.
Zen tells me there was a fight at front gate. Someone's phone was thrown in the fire. He went ballistic and started firing a gun wildly. Those who took him down knifed him numerous times. The perpetrator is in critical condition; others seriously hurt; one dead. I'm not sure of names. Imo, healing our gatherings for those who come for peaceful comeraderie requires running front gate A Camp free. This was an alcohol inspired event.
This is so sad :(
Didn't know him well; but he stood out with his smiling love; and understood that Love is Warrior. The love to drop what you think you need to do to help someone, which Smiley did all the time; to seeing someone else's life as equal to your own. He certainly was/is a Warrior; and tho we are the 'warriors of the rainbow', few people really have that in them. Just want to share this from his mom's gofundme site:
