My blog will be predominantly focused on Heathenism and it's interaction with the broader elements of the PanPagan movement. There is a lot of hostility within Heathenry towards the broader elements of Paganism, though I'm not really sure why. My goal is to address some of that, and build bridges through our commonalities and with a touch of humor.
Benefit for the Victims of the Kansas City Shooting - 10 Days Left!
If you've notice I've been a bit inactive, it's mostly because that most of the communities I involve myself in have caught a case of "Being-on-fire" and that has kept me quite busy. I have forgotten about things here, and you will be seeing some posts from me soon.
In the meantime, while I get those posts ready to roll, have you all heard about the fundraiser that some of us from Heathens United Against Racism have put together? It is to try and extend some goodwill, positivity, and compassion to those who were effected by Frazier Glen Cross in Kansas City, and help relieve those with financial burdens created by the frenzied madness of a murderer. While HUAR started this, we've seen support (both financial and awareness raising) from everyone from McNallen to Krasskova, and from the Troth to the AFA. Dozens of us have all put aside our political and philosophical differences in order to help bolster the spirits of those so effected by this madman. We've also seen assistance outside of the Heathen community from several covens, bloggers of all sorts, and the Pan-Pagan community in general. We are grateful for all of that help, and with just a little more we will be able to reach the goal we established in the hours following that crime.
We cannot buy back lives or peace of mind, but perhaps we can help stabilize these families enough that they can grieve and say goodbye without mundane distractions. We can give these families a small measure of support, and show them that our thoughts are with them during a horrible and bleak time.
We are in the last 10 days of the fundraiser, and our five thousand dollar goal is in sight. Those who have the money to give, please do. Those who don't, please help us spread the word. This is not money being raised on behalf of some faceless corperation; this was a fundraiser started by people in the community and initiated through a fund raising group that allows you to control how much of your donation goes to help their administrative costs. Every dollar you donate through this will go directly to the people effected.
Thank you for your consideration, and I'll be seeing you all again real soon.
