A little over two weeks ago, gun violence… once again… erupted and reared its ugly head, here, within gun sick America… this time the bloodshed occurring at Parkland, Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Once more, the lives of innocent school kids and educators have been tragically cut short.
It is with heavy heart that I extend my condolences to their surviving families and friends. My best wishes that the wounded victims experience the speediest and most complete recoveries possible. May the living nightmare everyone has been enduring begin to ease up so, hopefully, you can start piecing your shattered lives back together again.
My respect and admiration also go outward bound to you, the surviving students, who have turned to political activism. Your resolve to ensure your voices get heard and continue to be heard by the gun lobbyist owned legislators and “president” have proven that youth is a force to be reckoned with. You do offer a glimmer of hope to all the rest of us, who’ve been feeling powerless due to our overexposure to decades’ worth of worthless, decadent politicians.
Come March 24th… when you take your March For Our Lives demonstration to Washington, DC, continue to raise your collective voice to give ‘em all hell… and don’t stop until they stop dragging their political asses.
As for my further response to this massacre, I’ve decided to suspend my regular BlogCast format in favor of providing all who perished yet another social media platform to be remembered and another opportunity for all who survived to be heard once more…
