“We are a strong community.” “We will get through this.” “We ask the public to pray for us.” “Law enforcement is doing an amazing job.”
Are you serious?
Here we go again.
Can you even begin to identify the local law enforcement person who just made the above statements?
I bet you can’t.
“We need to pray for those who have been killed or injured.” And , “We are a strong community. We will come together in the face of this terrible tragedy.”
Name that town.
Name that tragedy.
Go ahead. I dare ya.
Cuz here’s what I think: It could be any angry/depressed/frustrated/thwarted person in your community. And it could be any mayor/representative/town council/selectboard expressing its shock/horror/outrage at the terrible events that have just unfolded in the happy/calm/quiet/small/local community where the shooter lived.
We are ALL a part of this world. We are ALL liable for the guns/anger/frustration that leads to this type of horrifying event in our local communities.
We are ALL liable for the fact that increasing numbers of disenfranchised young people have decided to shoot their way out of their depressing lives.
We are ALL responsible for the fact that this country allows everyone who wants a gun to buy that gun. We are ALL responsible for the senseless, pointless, meaningless deaths that continue to occur every single day in this lawless jungle that we so foolishly refer to as our “nation.”
