Yes the unthinkable has happened again. Another crazed gunman has decided to go into a school and kill innocent children. The sad truth is that it WILL happen again. Sad but true. Every time it happens the whole nation is appalled, saddened and indignant that it should never happen again. Social media shares their thoughts and prayers. People watch, deeply saddened at the loss of children's lives then slowly, as the days go by the memories fade and people begin to forget about it until one day, it happens again......to more innocent children and so the cycle continues. Heated conversations regarding gun laws and mental health peak and ebb with each mass shooting, everyone has their opinion but nothing ever changes!!
Regardless of your opinion about the root cause of these school shootings, they will continue because no-one knows how to stop them or prevent them from happening.
No-one knows how to fix it. Everyone is deeply entrenched in their opinions and their right to bear arms that no-one knows how to prevent future shootings. So when it happens people get angry and have the conversations. People call for action but nothing ever happens. Nothing. Ever. Happens. Nothing. Changes.
If you take no action as a nation how can you expect to prevent this from happening again. No-one wants to challenge the status quo. People who stand up and shout about gun control are shouted down by people who are adamant that their right to bear arms does not cause these shootings, they claim it's the lack of mental health services. People who perceive that the nation's gun culture causes these atrocities believe that it is all too easy to purchase a rifle irrelevant of your mental health.
I feel the both sides have valid points, however something needs to change or it will keep happening.
America is the only country who is having these repeated events. No other country in the world has this problem. Come on America wake up. Do something. Take action. Or watch it happen again and again to innocent people, innocent children.
Our children should not be going to school and having to even participate in armed intruder drills. There should be NO RISK! End of story. You need to wake up. Your children should have the right to go to school safely.
How many more children are going to die because you don't know how to fix it?
How many more parents are going to lose their children because you didn't do anything.
I don't know how we fix this. I wish I could fix this. I wish I could wave a magic wand and stop all future attacks of mass shootings. I wish it were that simple.
Wake up America!! Don't just have discussions, point fingers or say thoughts and prayers. Unite together and work out a solution. Make your schools safe again. We have already lost too many innocent lives and there will be more if nothing is done.
Every single one of those lives mattered. The media may forget and move on to the next big story but, for the families affected their pain never goes away. It becomes a life sentence. It's something they remember every morning before they open their eyes. How their loved one is longer alive. Taken away so suddenly.
Come on America we need change.
