This is not a time to keep silent


It’s time to mourn and weep for the dead in Florida, time to try to help the wounded to recover. It’s not a time to keep silence. It’s time to speak, again and again until lawmakers face the fact that guns are used to massacre schoolchildren.

“Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old suspected shooter, used an AR-15 semi-automatic style weapon during the massacre, law enforcement officials told the Associated Press. The highly deadly military-inspired rifle has been the weapon used by several mass shooters. The AR-15 was most notably used during the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. that claimed 27 lives, including that of the shooter.”

It’s time to SHOUT as loudly as possible until the SHOUT reaches lawmakers, and something is actually done about gun control.

    Thank you for saying it. I taught school for 38 yrs. Horrific things like this shake me to the core. I called my two senator offices and told them I expected action to help put an end to this violence. I was close to yelling.

    I hugged my son when he came from school.
    Thank you for taking action. It’s better yelling than weeping.
