Nothing Coming From Nothing
One wonders what they'll resort to once this contemptible gimmick goes the way of the poor old moment of silence. A moment of moderate din, perhaps, just distinguishable from the overall hubbub?
Tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m., Ms. Shephard and the grieving mothers and relatives who make up U-MOVE (United Mothers Opposing Violence Everywhere) want Torontonians to shout, honk their car horns and generally make a ruckus to help halt violence in the city.
"We're asking everyone to stop for a minute, a minute of noise," Ms. Shepard said at a news conference where Mayor David Miller proclaimed tomorrow as the U-MOVE day of nonviolence. "We're not interested in a minute of silence. Too many of our kids have already been silenced."
Action, ladies. Action with purpose and action with design. Otherwise all you're doing is whiting David Miller's sepulchre.
