Looking down and struggling to wrap my mind around the gut-wrenching violence at home. Words feel worthless: senseless, horrific, heartbreaking; there aren't enough adjectives
"At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency. And it is in our power to do something about it. I say that recognizing the politics in this town foreclose a lot of those avenues right now. But it would be wrong for us not to acknowledge it. And at some point it’s going to be important for the American people to come to grips with it, and for us to be able to shift how we think about the issue of gun violence collectively." - President Obama, in his June 18, 2015 statement on the Charleston shooting. .
We are at that point
We have been at that point. We keep reaching that point again and again. Sending love to those touched by this catastrophic terror 💔
