Another shooting!

I haven't blogged about the violence in this world since the Orlando shooting on June 13th. At 12:30AM in Fort Myers, Florida two young people died and 19 were injured. The victims ranged between 12 and 27 year olds.

Security was tight in the club. It was supposed to be a safe place for teens on a summer Sunday night. When the party ended and folks were leaving the shots rang out. Speculations and rumors are ruling out a terrorist attack or a hate crime. The odds are the shooting was gang or drug related. Doesn't matter to the parents of the 14-year old and 18-year old who were shot down. Doesn't matter to the injured. You can read about it in the New York Times.

Terrorist attacks since the Orlando shooting yes we have them. France was hit by a truck on Bastille Day. 80 people dead. Here's a link. Don't forget the 15 injured in a bombing in Germany. We could dig deeper in war torn countries and what we considered third world and find a bunch more. That's just in July.

When will it end? How do we heal? How do we put the hatred down?  What if it was your child?
