Just Another Day in America

I was going to post something rather light today, something easy to read, as the news lately hasn’t been kind and we’re all fatigued.

But I can’t. Not today. Not after this.

Another school shooting. More children dead. More children injured. Two suspects in custody. And another grieving community forced to ask, “Why?”

My soul is tired, exhausted from all of this. How many more bodies before we say, “Enough”? How many? When will we stop offering “thoughts and prayers” and actually get up and do something? When will we stop calling these “tragedies” and start calling them criminal acts or domestic terrorism?

I wish I had answers. But I don’t. And I don’t know if we ever will.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
