I am more than upset about yet another mass school shooting. I am pissed. Something MUST be done about this senseless and preventable violence. I’m glad I found this poem. This guy says exactly what I’m feeling today. ENOUGH!
Well, here we are again. Right back where we were after Columbine. And where we were after Sandy Hook. The same place we find ourselves after every one of these horrific mass shootings. And we’re back in this place of grief and despair and shock and horror because we’ve done absolutely nothing to stop these shootings.
It’s a horrible feeling to feel so helpless to stop this senseless violence. Every time, the left gets outraged at yet more death due to gun violence – while the Republicans refuse to do a damn thing about it.
I’ve been upset after every single one of these shootings. But this one is hitting me differently. This time I’m pissed. I’m pissed that as the greatest nation on the planet we continue to allow innocent men, women, and children to be slaughtered by guns.
This is so not OK. This entire country needs to wake up and DEMAND that Congress do something. DO something!
I found this great video posted on Occupy Democrats’ Facebook page today which expresses very well what a lot of us are feeling right now.
The poem was written and performed by IN-Q.
