My heart hurts. Seeing another senseless tragedy due to gun violence just makes me sad and angry all at once.
This has to stop.
It is more than access to guns, but do we really need the access we have?
It may involve mental health, but with little funding and not making a diagnosis are we doing enough to fix it?
It might be trauma. Kids who experience trauma and don’t have the right resources can escalate.
Whatever it is, we need to take action and make it stop.
We can have a second amendment and still have gun safety and control.
We need to start diagnosing mental illness earlier and make sure there is access to care.
We need to stop bullying, isolation, and things that cause people to lash out.
We need to vote. We need to pray. We need to start talking about solutions and stop putting our kids and our country at risk.
Schools aren’t safe.
Workplaces aren’t safe.
We can’t build a wall around everything.
This needs to stop.
