I am absolutely shocked that such a terrible tragedy has happened in
Aurora, Newtown,Columbine,Tucson,Orlando, Las Vegas. This is a small, tight knit community! Everyone knows everyone else in this town. No one EVER expected something like this to happen here! This is something that happens somewhere else, not in OUR town.
It is just unbelievable that a
young man could so easily obtain a Bushmaster, Uzi, Glock, pistol, automatic weapon “long gun” and simply walk right into a church,kindergarten,high school, movie theater, Community College, hotel room and start shooting.
The nation mourns with those who have lost children, parents, sisters, brothers, friends in this senseless event. We will join in the usual round of candlelight vigils, handwringing and moaning with all of you.
We know that
Newtown, Littleton, Aurora, Tucson, Charleston, Blacksburg, Roseberg, Orlando, Las Vegas are strong. They will come together to heal from this terrible event and will support each other as they seek to make sense of the horrific tragedy.
We offer our sympathy, prayers, solidarity and endless hours of TV coverage to those who are grieving.
Apparently what we don’t offer is the slightest attempt to take the guns off the streets.
Until next time, please feel free to use the above script when reacting to the slaughter of innocents in the United States.
