  •  Thank You, Mark (7+ / 0-)

    There are so many of us experiencing the same weariness...Your words and resolve are appreciated and will encourage me to do the same.

    I simply don't understand how we can continue on this path and not begin to make changes. I am not so naive to believe we could actually get rid of all guns, nor would I suggest it. However, there has to be a way for us to stop this senseless slaughter.

    I lost a dear friend to gun violence about a decade ago, and I still miss him like it was yesterday. He was shot in the parking lot of a local watering hole by a guy who just didn't like him.  It was just senseless.

    Add this week's events and I am almost overwhelmed. Even living so far removed from these mass shootings , it is difficult to explain to my 8 year old daughter when she asks why people want to hurt other people and why they get to have guns when guns are so destructive.
