Sandy Hook

This country not only needs to re-examine gun control, but readjust our cultural thinking.

We dismiss the mentally ill and ostracize them socially.

We insult and belittle mental illness ("crazy", "batshit insane", "off her meds", "off his rocker") instead of holding out the hand of compassion or taking the time to listen.

We profit off industries that sell video games that encourage viewing living things as targets of violence, plus movies & TV shows that glorify BLASTIN' GATS.

We resort to hostility instead of sympathy.

We don't even say HI to our neighbors on a daily basis.

When was the last time you or I reached out with a simple smile to make a loner feel less lonely?

We fucking SUCK.
