Another school shooting, let’s be sure to do nothing again
America is killing itself. I mean that quite literally, America is killing itself in the streets, at concerts, in churches, and in schools. Just this morning, another school shooting, this one in Maryland. As I write these words, there are no reports of fatalities, but that does not lessen the angst of those who care... Read more »
