The following Letter to the Editor represents the views of the writer. Patch merely serves as a platform for individals to express their opinions.
Well folks, HERE WE GO AGAIN1I am sick and tired of the mindset of the gun lobby! And our citizens that have fought for and earned the right to carry guns to schools, churches and public meetings!
What has happened to our values? Is it more important to save the lives of innocent children or ensure every damn person the right to bear arms?
Doesn't each child deserve the right to go to school in safety, to be able to grow up and live a life? How much longer are these senseless executions of our young people going to take place?
Murder is NOT a strong enough term. They are being executed. while our president and our congress and all of us stand by, waiting for "the right time" waiting for "somebody else" to do something.
Why doesn't every citizen, every parent, every grandparent, every elected official rise up and protest this idiocy? How many more sweet, innocent children have to die, before our country, one of the most violent countries in the world, decides to take ACTION!
I have lost a child. I know the horrible dark, sinking feeling that each of these parents and siblings are now feeling. Their lives will be shattered for years to come. THEIR LIVES HAVE BEEN EXTRICABLY ALTERED, FOREVER!
Isn't there enough evil in this crazy world already without having to sacrifice our children.
If each of us sits back and waits fort a change to happen, don't be surprised when another evil episode like todays is blasted into our homes and we have to listen to another horrendous account in another, school another movie theatre, another public gathering.We will have only ourselves to blame.
PARENTS & GRANDPARENTS, EVERYONE......RALLY!WRITE!PROTEST!COMMUNICATE!UNITELET'S DO SOMETHING! LET'S CHANGE THIS!!!
