You may feel helpless to fix it, but you are not. You can't solve the problem totally, but you can reduce the number of mass shootings. Organize, mobilize, and pressure your lawmakers. But I know, first you need to grieve.Helpless. Are we all feeling the same?
Over the next few days, the names and photos of the children will be released. Their stories. How they were looking forward to summer, 2nd or 4th grade graduation, birthday parties, summer camp, swimming, staying up late, family vacations. All wiped out.. forever.
We are helpless to to fix it. Helpless to explain to our kids and grandkids that they are safe, when we know they are not.
All we can do is brace for the heartache we will witness over the coming days. Then we will try to move on.
Until it happens again.
