Please read what follows. Thanks 🙏. I believe this cemetery statue is representing Mary, the mother of Jesus, grieving over the death of her son. I find it heart-wrenching because there is so much to grieve over in our world. Therefore it takes courage to commit to the pursuit of truth, beauty and goodness, as well as a supportive community in that quest. The Florida school shooting yesterday, where an expelled High school student got his hands on a semi automatic rifle, (made solely to kill as many people as quickly as possible, and for no other reason), and killed 17 people, spawns an initial surge of empathetic grief. After, come the calls to “do something for God’s sake.” It’s at this stage that the American culture war hits the stage, one side blustering that mental illness is the cause, and the other spitting righteous indignation at the fact that a high school student could be allowed to access such a weapon of mass killing. What I grieve over is that this culture war, that divides America so starkly, leaves no room for middle ground. The reality is that, of course, both mental illness and gun access are causal factors, as well as others. Instead of encouraging advancement on both fronts, The conversation stalls and polarization wins out. The president, the National Rifle Association, and compromised republican law makers on the one side, and democrats and so-called liberals on the other. As well, the banality of other-worldly religion steps on stage with calls for prayer for the victims (killed and grieving). Mary grieving at the cross sums up for me the human condition in the face of so much meaningless suffering. Stop the words, stand still, grieve, and then act to alleviate the causes of mental illness and easy access to killing machine, for the sake of preserving a civil and sane society. #CultureWar #AmericanCulture #SemiAutomaticRifle’s #KillingMachines #NRA #NationalRifleAssociation #Democrats #Republicans #CulturalDivide #MassShooting #MentalIllness #EasyAccessToGuns #MerryGrievesOverTheDeathOfHerSon #CemeteryStatue #CallsForPrayer #BanalReligion #ReligionCaughtInCultureWar #Grief #Grieving #MaryMotherOfJesus

The biggest Jesus statue I’ve ever seen

Hiram J. Hampton (1852-1920) He was from Georgia originally and nicknamed the "pistol packing doctor". He owned and operated the Tampa Heights Sanitarium in the late 19th and early 20th century. The inscription reads, "I love my companions and appreciate my friends on earth, and crave that we may have a reunion after death." He is reputed to be the first doctor in Tampa, buried along side his wife who also has a life size statue.
