In the past seven days there have been seven mass shootings in the U.S., the last two in Georgia and Colorado. I’m not going to rant and rave as I usually do, because frankly, I just don’t have it in me right now. As President Obama said in his statement addressing the latest massacre in Boulder, Colorado:
A once-in-a-century pandemic cannot be the only thing that slows mass shootings in this country. We shouldn’t have to choose between one type of tragedy and another. It’s time for leaders everywhere to listen to the American people when they say enough is enough—because this is a normal we can no longer afford.
Thoughts and prayers are not enough.
