“A teenage gunman opened fire at a Southern California high school Thursday morning, killing two students and wounding three others, before shooting himself in the head, officials said.”
Yet another horrific, senseless, and likely preventable school shooting occurred yesterday. It barely made the national news, as such shootings are becoming all too common. And all of our elected representatives, or at least all of the Republican representatives, anyway, seem able to do is to send their thoughts and prayers.
Last night I was catching up on the comments on my FOWC with Fandango word prompt yesterday, where the word was “can.” One of the commenters, Christine Bialczak at Stine Writing, wrote a post in response to that prompt and it really moved me. She expressed the frustration that I, and so many of us in America, am feeling about all of these mass shootings, particularly at schools.
I want more people to read and to share Christine’s words, but my reblog button on my WordPress iPhone app still doesn’t seem to be working. So I’ve taken a screenshot of her post and am re-posting it here.Please follow this link over to Christine’s post and share your thoughts with her. I also encourage you to reblog her post (if your reblog button works) so that as many people as possible will start asking these same questions and perhaps ask them of their elected representatives.
