About the Newton Elementary School shooting...

For the news, politicians, everyone really:I know it’s tempting, but try not to turn this tragedy about politics. If you got something to say, go ahead and say it, I’m not stopping you. Don’t like guns? Alright, that’s fine, go say how much you hate the 2nd amendment. That’s not what this is about though. This about the families, the community, the loss of innocent children, teachers, human beings. Don’t make those dead another statistic, at least, not this soon. Don’t use this incident as another political device. Don’t go saying jokes about the dead. Try to have some sympathy, some respect, for those who lost their lives today. I have nothing wrong with a “I’m so mad people like this can get guns”, because seriously, I think it’s what everyone’s thinking. I have a problem with using it as another device to push along other agendas, purposely or not. 

At least wait a day before going on about how the President needs to ban all guns,  or debate on whether or not the death penalty should be legalized, when you use this particular incident as a direct source and talk about it as if it’s nothing but a number or percentage. It’s too soon. 

For everyone involved: I’m so incredibly sorry. This isn’t right, it isn’t fair, and it’s one of the worst thing that can ever happen to a community. It’s awful, and even I’m upset over this entire ordeal. Whether you are religious or not, my thoughts and prayers go out to anyone affected. If I had known, I would’ve stayed up all last night, wishing on every shooting star for this to never ever happen. I’m so sorry.
