Enough is Enough!!
Prayers and Condolences are not enough. How long will we watch as our children are slaughtered while trying to get an education? How many times will parents say goodbye to their child, when leaving for school, not knowing this will be the last “goodbye?”
Eighteen school shootings in 2018 and we are just in the month of February! Sure, we have a lot of individuals dealing with mental illnesses, but this last shooting was so well planned and calculated, that I find it hard to believe there was a mental illness. The Executive Order preventing people with mental illness from receiving guns was one of the first Executive Orders reversed by the current president. Does he hate President Obama so much that he will watch innocent people suffer? How can someone 19 years old buy a semi-automatic weapon but can’t purchase a pistol? How can someone 19 years old purchase 10 rifles? My heart breaks for the families who have lost love ones because of gun violence that could have been prevented.
We have mid-term elections coming up and November. Our VOTE is our VOICE. If we don’t vote these politicians out of office, then we can’t complain. They work for us. We are the ones who put them in office, either by voting them in or not voting and they get in. Let’s not turn our backs on our children. We MUST take a stand.
