We Have Got To Stop Accepting This As Our New Normal

Another school shooting, this one a little to close for comfort, not far from my home town of Spokane,Wa. Thats right, by now most of the country knows about the school shooting at Freeman High School, located in Rockford, Washington, about a half hour north east of me…… 3 injured, 1 brave student, who tried to stop the shooter, is dead, I have since learned that earlier this year, his father passed away as well, they had started a Gofund me page to help raise money to put the two kids (Sam, who was killed on Wednesday) and his sister Emily, the page is still up and they are still accepting donations, if you can help, please go here  College fund for Emily Strahan  

 

Here is what I want to know, how is it that we have gotten to a point in this country where this has become the new normal, where our president seems more concerned about a stupid wall then gun control (notice I see control) I am getting tired of law abiding citizens acting as though the government is coming after their guns, and no, we do not NEED machine guns, some may WANT them.

I think part of reason this bothers me is because my sister and nieces are in school , my sister a 3rd grade teacher, my oldest niece in the 2nd grade and my youngest niece in pre-school, oh and my brother in law works for the school district as well, so yeah school shootings hit me pretty deep.

 

All these years later after Sandy Hook,Columbine, Aurora, Virginia tech, Freeman, and all the others, to many to list, people are still more concerned about their rights then the lives of innocent people, who did nothing but wake up, go to school, go to work, to a movie, with out fear of losing their lives, when will be able to enjoy life again with out having to worry about weather or not we are going to come home alive at the end of the day?
