In the face of the deadly evil – these are the beautiful people we should be thinking and talking about. The victims. The people who went to school one morning – and never got to go home to their families again. They are the young people who could have changed the world with their talents.

A soccer player, swimmer, teacher, football coach. Young fresh faced students. Heroic teachers. They are among the 17 people killed by a gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. They deserve our attention.

Carmen, Aaron, Martin, Scott, Nicholas, Gina, Alyssa, Luke, Meadow, Alex, Helena, Peter, Chris, Jaime, Joaquin, Alaina & Cara.

May you all rest in peace.



Some thoughts on the shooting.

STOP the blame game. If BOTH sides refuse to come together – these shootings will continue
