Last night I couldn’t sleep. My mind continues to race. Tears build up in my eyes as I think about the children lost and the parents who lost them. 6,7,8,9,10 years old… These are the BABIES that we are talking about.

At the moment of the shooting, I imagine them being scared and screaming inside, wanting nothing but to be protected by their mommy or daddy. And, what about the other young children who will be traumatized by this moment forever?

Those who lived through it will have to endure the rest of their life holding onto this horrific memory. THIS IS NOT OKAY.

If you don’t believe that this is America’s issue with guns then we are not seeing eye to eye and most likely never will. Because tell me how you could look into the eyes of the parents and family members who lost a child and say that “it’s not the guns.”

Change NEEDS to be made. Action NEEDS to be taken.
