Repeat After Me: It Should Not To Be This Way

June 20, 2017

Last week marked one year since the shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando and two years since the shooting at a church in Charleston. And the world watched in shock as members of Congress were targeted while practicing baseball.  If this were a book idea 20 years ago no editor would have agreed to print such trash.

But listen now.  These shootings I mentioned above are only the shootings that made headlines.

The reality is 93 people are killed by gun violence every day in this country, and few of those deaths make the papers. Between these shocking mass shootings and the daily toll of gun violence, one can run out of language to talk about the carnage. In fact, as I have mentioned many a time on this blog all the media coverage, and all the vigils seem to have numbed Americans to the point many now consider all this as the new norm.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

It should not be this way.

What say you?
