Sometimes there are no words when it comes to acts of violence. There is no way to make sense of the hatred in people’s hearts and there is nothing that can take away the pain. Last night there was a mass shooting, what else is new right? It seems as though as Americans we believe that we live in the safest country in the world, but we can’t go to movie theaters, concerts, schools, malls, church, and nightclubs with the constant worry about what will happen. Will we be safe?
Everyone is saying that their thoughts and prayers go to the victims, survivors and their families and mind absolutely do. I want nothing more than for them to find comfort in these next hard days, weeks, months, and years. This act of violence is absolutely disgusting.
When will it stop? When will this chaos and hatred end? I have no idea. Looking into the future it looks bleak to say the least.
So I will leave it at this. Florida has had two shootings within the course of 24 hours. The murder of Christina Grimmie, and now this. An absolute act of terror and hatred. An act that will only try and bring different political parties to have people look at it from their view. At the end of the day, it is clear that there is far too much gun violence in this country.
May every single person effected by this find comfort somehow, whether it’s in a friend, a family member, a song, anything. Hold onto that and keep the memory of all those who were victims of this senseless tragedy alive. Tell their stories and let everyone know that this isn’t what the United States is about.
Love is love.
