Enough

There was another school shooting. I was going to write my immediate reaction to the horrific events at Santa Fe High School, but that felt gross, and to be honest, what more is there to say? It’s horrible, it’s too much, it’s positively odious. The people calling the kids actors, the people saying this is fake, the people saying this is Obama’s doing, and the jackass who showed up afterward draped in a flag with a gun strapped to his hip…I’m gobsmacked and disgusted.

I just want to be worn down by the usual end-of-year stampede that hits parents every May. Things like running out of snacks and signing permission slips and countdowns to summer break. I don’t want to be worn down by worry, by fear, by sorrow over something so very preventable.

Please consider going to everytown.org or momsdemandaction.org. Please help do the work – call your senators, representatives, and Governors. Work to shore up loopholes and tighten background checks. Work for common sense. March. Write. Speak up. Do something with us.
