The bright futures of 19 children were tragically cut short
A few days ago, there was a shooting in Buffalo supermarket killing 15 people. Now in an Elementary school, killing 19 children and 2 teachers. While it’s true we cannot legislate morality, it’s also true that we can’t legislate depression, mental health, and or anxiety but what we can do, is regulate behavior and those with guns. It’s Time To Act.
