Today’s Shooting Really Puts Things In Perspective

I won’t go into what happened today, you already know that. Opinions are flooding the Internet and TV screens everywhere. We get it, guns are bad. Why are these tragic moments still happening? It is just so messed up.

It is Christmas. All of the hustle and bustle does not seem to be that big a deal anymore. So what if that one perfect gift is sold out. Who cares of there is a long line at the store.

There are parents that no longer have the kids they started the day with. Going home to a house of what was to be Christmas cheer.

It makes me so mad and so sad all at once.

Yes, it was touching to see President Obama get choked up about it. But is anything going to change? Doubtful. The news cycle will run the course and we will go back to normal until the next shooting.

America and other countries need to get a handle on this.

Oh by the way, this is not just an American issue, don’t hate the millions of people who had nothing to do with it. This shooting could have happened anywhere in the world.

Don’t put all Americans under one crazy blanket. This has happened in Norway and many other places. American needs to clean up the guns and how easy it is to get one.

I can’t even think about it past 10-20 seconds. It hurts just to imagine. I have good friends who live in the US and love it. But I think of them tonight and their kids that they send to school every day.

Clean up the guns. I don’t care how, just do it.
