  •  I've pointed that out a few times. (6+ / 0-)

    Isn't there a diary here everyday for those people who joined the armed forces knowing they were risking their lives? What is the ratio between soldiers overseas dying from gun violence and innocent victims in the cites and towns right here at home.

    Could you imagine the power of one personal story being told and a daily memorial for every America who is shot down dead in this nation? Honestly I'm not even sure if it would make any difference but it would be worth recording the lives lost to guns.

      for sure. ;)

      Hunter's format tonight just reminded me of it.

      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
