I’m sorry I cannot cry for you. I’ve tried, but the tears won’t come. Each of you another one of those acceptable losses that fearful men embrace because they refuse to face their selfish cruelty. If only we dared annihilate all this hate, could we have changed your fate?
As I write these words the tired old arguments heard after every mass shooting are already heating up. In a few days the NRA will parade its’ bought and paid for politicians a few hundred miles away. Each will say they care, and they do, but not about you.
Nineteen tiny caskets. Twenty-one massacred. Others injured. Blood was everywhere. There will be counselors at schools. Prayers. Lots of prayers, but will anything be done? Have we finally had enough?

What can I say these children are the age of my eldest grandson…. No one is safe. GET RID OF THE GUNS!
Oh, our parents are far too busy banning books to worry about something as superfluous as guns. 🙃
It’s a mad world!
It is indeed.
It’s tragic, in the fullest sense of an over used word.
The pro-gun lobby have so much power.
I wonder why they go after innocents? Kids at school? Old people at a grocery store?
I think it’s because they are bullies and cowards that go after those weaker than themselves. They probably think they are brave and macho.
Then they should prove their machismo by going after a tough target.
It’s sickening. Nobody, absolutely nobody, needs an AR-15.
Absolutely no family should have to submit a DNA sample to help identify their child because the body was unrecognizable.
That part makes me so sick. There is absolutely no reason to be selling a weapon that can obliterate. No reason. Period.
