Parkland march along Central Park West. Against mass shootings. Winter 2018. Lots of passionate people. Sadly. Nothing has changed.
Today. El Paso. Dayton. Over 29 dead.
Over 1,100 NYT people agree:
Until America loves its children more than its guns…
nothing will change.
Until America loves its children more than its guns nothing will change. This time another two dead kids; a six-year old boy and a thirteen-year old girl at the Garlic Festival in Gilroy, California.
Our divided country’s fissures don’t seem to be narrowing. A staged CNN anti-gun town hall exploited grieving kids and relatives of murdered students. The White House held its own listening meeting as the President pushed arming military-trained teachers. Today NRA Chair Wayne LaPierre used his insane rant at CPAC as a call to war against rising socialism.
Then there’s the never-ending gender divide. New York Times opinion column The Boys Are Not All Right by Michael Ian Black discusses guns and boys. It so resonated with my sentiments on the subject, I commented and it was a NYTimes Pick. Making young men feel that they are toxic surely will not provide a healthier outlook. Broken record alert.
Even the poor Central Park forsythia is conflicted. Is it February? Hope springs…
Common cable news event coverage. Mass shooting somewhere. Who? Troubled student. Disturbed lone teen. Deranged hermit. Jilted lover. Angry religious couple. What? Spray of bullets leaving many dead in a short time. When? Morning. Evening. Afternoon. Where? School. Social gathering. Planned Parenthood. College. Church. Why? Who cares? How? Assault weapons.
Common denominator. Guns. Guns. Guns. Guns. Guns.
