More on DC Holocaust Museum shooting
The brave young man guarding the Holocaust Musuem has died. His assailant, 88 year old holocaust denier James von Brunn, proved by his nefarious actions that the Holocaust exists. Not that we need any more proof- we see pictures on TV showing Darfur, Pakistan, so many places in the world crying for peace.
How can we understand Von Brunn’s actions? Was this his last “run” before he grew too old to spread more hatred and chaos? His last attempt to feel powerful and real?
Tonight was to have been opening night for a play about Emmet Till and Anne Frank- von Brunn thought Frank never existed, was just a made up story. I don’t know if he believed Emmet Till was real or not, or if he cared. The play is postponed for now, but will be produced. That is our proof that even while holocausts exist, it is also true that the righteous exist too.
