Yesterday’s New York Times Magazine had an article entitled So Sorry. It was about the phrase “thoughts and prayers.” I have thought that we need to come up with something different to express our true grief at something such as the shooting in Oregon. Martin O’Malley, former governor of Maryland agrees. ‘“Tweets won’t stop this,” said. “Thoughts and prayers won’t either.”’
Spurred by the article I read in the Times, I think it’s time we did something about it. Our gun lobby is too powerful. We must think of a way to get guns under control. I don’t have an answer but perhaps our collective brain power can come up with a solution.
