October 3rd - Recovery from a Slaughter
The outpour from those supporting the aftermath of #prayforvegas is staggering. People from all walks of life have come together to help, support, and pray for the suffering.
It’s not uncommon for Americans to unite after a tragic event, it’s wonderful to see. Though, it’s almost bitter in a way.
The attention after mass shootings and tragic events are often short. Weeks go by and life is back to normal for most, those who are not directly affected. The FBI reports that every two weeks these massacres take place. A mass shooting has a victim count of 4 or more people. None of these shootings were as horrific in body count as the deadliest single shooter attack in modern history, Las Vegas.
Can you recall the Orlando, Florida slaughter that ended life for 49 people on June 12, 2016, inside the Pulse nightclub? Just over a year ago and with 32 mass shootings later, America is no closer to solving the issue.
Just last month a family of 9 were murdered in Plano Texas, the copycat generation seems preoccupied on killing. It’s up to us to remember these dates and not allow them to continue. We must personally become vigilant, scope our surroundings and stop being so damn polite not to ask a stranger about his or her day. Communication with strangers can lead to call signs that may save hundreds of lives.
Stronger restrictions on gun control are not the answer, nor does it work. If the government banned guns, no one would have them to kill. “Really? Meth and cocaine are illegal and drug addicts buy this every day on the street.”
