The George Zimmerman Trial Is Not the Center of the World by Diana Chen.


Diana Chen writes for an online magazine called PolicyMic

Her contention is; why with all that is going on in the world were Americans so focused on the George Zimmerman trial.

Ms Chen says we are utterly engrossed in ourselves which is possibly true, but let us look at it this way.

How many Americans are going to visit Egypt?

How does President Obama’s trip to Africa resonate?

Edward Snowden?  Well we read about it.

OK, Ms. Chen, here is your answer.  How many American mothers looked at this mess and said, “This could have been my son?”  Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill said “All politics is local.”

With all due respect Ma’am, this is local.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
