More on Gun Violence

So, in the United States, you can kill a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds…

And nothing will change. #sandyhook

By the way…have you ever had a conversation with a 5 or 6 year old?

You should. It’s fun.

But in this country, you can kill an entire classroom of children…which maybe included a future…teacher? Activist? Scientist?

Or maybe just a normal mom, or dad, or person?

You can shoot them down. Babies.

You would think that someone, somewhere, would say, “that’s not cool. Does our country maybe have an issue with guns?”

But what happens instead is that people say…

He had mental health issues.

Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.

And then we feel better.

A few days go by without a school shooting.

We breathe out.

We go back to normal. And we hope it’s the last time we have to see kids running from a school. In terror. As their parents watch from a distance and wonder, “is my baby still alive?”

Maybe.
