Today, it was a work day and I have been suffering with plantar fasciitis, so by the end of the day, I could hardly walk. Tonight is me night – a night at my son’s apartment sitting, so I took advantage of having his car, and giving my foot a rest, to drive out to Crescent Beach, which is near me. Despite the pain in my foot, I relished the time at the beach and watching the sun set.
Sometimes it’s just nice to forget the pain your in, and see some beauty in your life.
Another report of a mass school shooting. This time in Texas at an elementary school.
What is wrong with this world that makes an 18 year old go into an elementary school and start shooting? And how does an 18 year old even get a gun? Are there no age restrictions in the States? Or maybe the need to take a course before being able to use one? You know like you have to do in order to drive?
It sickens me what is happening in the States. I wish I could say the world but I don’t hear in the news that within a one week period two mass shootings happen anywhere else. Maybe there are but I am pretty sure we’d hear about it.
Stricter gun regulations are needed in the US now. In the meantime, prayers go to the families of the victims.
