Yesterday, around the globe, young and old marched in solidarity with the youth of the United States of America. The youth of that country are begging, nay, demanding that appropriate action be taken to rid the nation of the current disease of gun related deaths in schools and elsewhere. How sad that, at least in their own minds the most influential country on the planet, needs to be told by their children to put the guns away. The kids want to go to school without having to worry about being shot. Doesn't seem like much to ask does it. And the rest of us? All around the world? We agree with them. Speaking as a Canadian, a mother and a grandmother, I have to wonder how long it will be before the insidious black evil that is rotting and festering across the border from us will come oozing and slimeing (if it's not a word it should be) its way over here. Then it will be our children and grandchildren facing down guns in the corridors of their schools. We all need to take a stand. The kids are right. Enough IS enough. Time to grow up, give up the 'wild West mentality'. This isn't the 1700's anymore...you don't need to defend your property against roving bands of natives out to scalp you. Put your toys in the shredder. They're dangerous. They are killing your children.
I'm an old lady and I'm entitled to my opinion. If you don't like it, don't read it. No apologies forthcoming.
