We are deeply saddened by the mass shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida this week. 17 young people were killed on that tragic day. This is not something to take lightly. It has only been four short months since the massacre at Sutherland Springs, Texas. The number of mass shootings that take place in the United States dwarfs those in other countries around the world.
It is time for us to come together, get to the root of the problem, and reform our laws to create real change so that we may prevent future atrocities such as this. Take action, use your voice, talk to your representatives, find your local gun control organizations, make sustainable change.
