As we celebrated the gift of love that a mother bestows on her children, shots were fired at people from Colorado Springs to Phoenix to a Baltimore suburb to California to Newark to Milwaukee to St Louis. People were shot dead or hit with a bullet tearing into one’s flesh. For too many this Mother’s Day weekend was not a celebration of love, but a time for grieving.
It seems that as the corona virus retreats gun violence increases. Does our America need a new warning: Be careful where you go, be careful because there are too many guns, too many short tempers, too little respect for life?
5/18/18 is the day of another school shooting. Eight students and two teachers did not return home from Santa Fe High School because they were shot dead while at school. I ask America what are we going to do about the killing of our youth. Youth are gunned down in schools and on our city streets. The youth of America is the future of America. We adults are failing our youth by not making strict laws, by not rethinking the #2A. When will we start to stop the blood shed? No child should fear being shot- this is America. And shame on us – this is the America where children fear being shot.
