Not to be political or preachy, but guns are bad. I think that at heart everyone knows this. Nothing good ever came from guns. People don’t use them to plant flower gardens. They are only used to hurt people or animals. In Gene Roddenberry’s future humans have for the most part moved past this senseless violence. Hopefully we as a nation and people can finally say enough is enough and it’s time for our leaders to ignore the lobbyists and say to us the people. Ok it’s time to take your toys away because you can’t play nice with others. Peace and long life.
An official fund for victims’ families, and the community as a whole, has now been established: The Sandy Hook School Support Fund, set up by the United Way of Western Connecticut will provide support services to families and the community. All donations to this fund will go directly to those affected.
The Red Cross has also been on the ground, offering food and water to first responders, and providing more than 50 units of blood to Danbury hospital where some of the victims were transported. They have set up a center for emergency grief counseling.
