When Independence Day looks like Groundhog Day
Updated: Nov 4
Isn't it sad when Independence Day turns into Groundhog Day?
I created this horrible meme after tragedy in Ulvade, Texas, the preventable tragedy in Ulvade. I didn't want to post the meme as I hadn't heard of any mass shootings that particular day but only 24 hours later, there was reason to post this Groundhog Day meme, and once again, there is reason to post it after all the mass shootings on Independence Day.
I believe there were five mass shootings including one in Denmark but the four on the Fourth of July are a scary reminder how frequent mass shootings in America are. In fact there have been over 300 such shootings since the start of the year and we are only half way through 2022.
I always find it amazing that the weapons needed to win the war of independence have advanced over the last 250 years but the laws restricting their usage hasn't.
Thoughts and prayers for all those affected by the latest series of preventable mass shootings on Independence Day but once again, I find myself quoting Joyce when he said:
"I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day."
When will Republicans give some thought to gun control and stop preying on others?
THE ELEPHANT IN THE SCHOOL: The I created the Wordart images posted here after the Robb Elementary School shooting in Ulvalde, Texas and include hundreds of names of school shootings since Columbine High School. The Republican Party may use an elephant as their logo but we will have to have the memory of an elephant and remember each and every one of these horrible preventable deaths as they continue to happen again, and again and again.
