355 Mass Shootings in 2015: America, You Should Be Ashamed of Yourself

I’m ashamed of you.

I’m disgusted. I’m sad. I’m mad. I’m weeping as I write this.

This is not a civilized society. We freely (and easily) arm our population so that we can turn and gun each other down with mind-numbing frequency.

This is not a democracy. This is not liberty.

America, you think you are so great. But take a good look at yourself. How can you be a proud nation, and yet so impotent to do what needs to be done? Politicians, you talk a good talk but where’s the conviction, where’s the action? Where are your balls? It’s shameful.

Last year I became an American citizen. After living here for 15 years, and raising a family here, I decided I need a vote. I believed that maybe, just maybe, my vote might make a difference.

Today I’m not so sure. Today I told my husband I don’t want to live in a country that just sits by and lets these godawful things happen to good people.

Screw “thoughts and prayers.” Those are empty words.

Yes, I’m emotional. Yes, I know this is a divisive issue. But this I also know. I cannot stomach it any more.

So I am seriously considering packing my bags and leaving. Because I don’t want to live in a country that has no respect left.
