Time to Remember
Another mass shooting.
It's heartbreaking to have to say" another" as this just keeps happening.And the finger pointing and fighting have already started. Again.Both sides of the political fence are attacking the other, partisan politics pointing out perceived blame as the other sides fault.And everyone has an opinion what the "real problem " is-be it taking the bible out of schools to a lack of armed guards on each campus,
or the fact that someone who is deemed mentally ill can freely purchase an assault weapon, and so on.
Some fear the Government is going to take away their guns and others fear that no one is stopping the wrong people from having guns.The bottom line to me is, this isn't a partisan problem.
Life isn't a right relegated to political beliefs. or religious beliefs, for that matter.
This is something that needs to be addressed.
I think one of the stupidest things to say is that this isn't the time to start a conversation about gun control. Or guns. Or anything , for that matter. Just send thoughts and prayers.Ok, I get it. You think that there shouldn't be any restrictions on guns. Fine.It's our right as an American. But how about a conversation about how to change things like this from tearing us apart? How to stop it?
Instead of saying it's not the time for conversations about guns and posting about thoughts and prayers - which I personally think are lovely sentiments but not an effective cure-instead of posting that, let's talk about some alternatives.
Instead of trying our damndest at placing blame and effectively doing nothing,let's come together and talk about viable solutions. I don't think it's too late for us.
Knee-jerk reactions are futile and letting something that should not be a dividing factor like
protecting our children from crazies with guns, or protecting our neighbors, or our loved ones from violent death- that shouldn't be the thing tearing us apart, right?It is , after all, our unalienable rights protected by the government-life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
We should be united in this. We need to find a way to stop this from happening.
To not just say, there is nothing we can do. Because I for one am sick and tired of saying "another mass shooting."
