As many of you know, I occasionally come across articles, comments, news items, etc. in my daily readings that prompt me to write a post. The following Letter to the Editor was published in our local newspaper and most definitely fits the parameters. It’s in response to the most recent school shooting in Texas.
Do you think the parents of the dead Santa Fe children are proud to have donated their kid’s lives for the good of the NRA? Will they get a medal or a plaque to commemorate their child’s service? Will they stand proud with their hands over their hearts knowing that their child died so that Dana Loesch [spokesperson for the National Rifle Association] can go pump bullets through an AR-15 any darn time she feels like it?
If all congress members and Donald were required to walk through schools where mass shootings have just taken place, to see first hand the carnage and bullet riddled bodies, would they say that this was an acceptable amount of human sacrifice on the shrine of NRA privilege?
Too bad Donald didn’t “do everything in (his) power” before they got dead. Too bad his speech is all just words and he still won’t do a single thing in his power, even as he steps over their blood-spattered bodies on the way to his next campaign rally.
