Welcome back for what was supposed to be an upbeat post wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day. But, we’re in the U.S. during one of the most trying eras in our history. I generally purposefully maneuver around more serious news and keep it light. I can’t. Not again.
Seventeen people died today. More kids. Parents who should never have to bury their children are finding out now that they have to plan a funeral. Think about that. Really think about that.
This. Is. Wrong.
I will not debate what has led us to a place where we’ve had eight shootings since the beginning of the year. I just want to say that we have to do better. No matter where it began and what led us to this place, we have to do something differently. We’ve lost more than seventeen lives, we’ve lost what they and all others who passed before them would have added to our world. We have given it away by our inaction.
This has to stop.
