another tuesday in america, another slaughterhouse that was, until now, an elementary school. they’re saying 15 dead—14 kids & a teacher.
at this point there is nothing to say or do, really. there’s a playoff basketball game in dallas tonight & i wish instead of an inevitable moment of silence beforehand, the players just said, nope. no more basketball until y’all figure out how to make it so children aren’t massacred at school.
it’s shameful that politicians take no measures after atrocities like this, and it’s shameful the people let them. that we move on. that we let ourselves move on.
they’ve been making a big deal on the news about war crimes over in ukraine, which usually involves the shooting of unarmed civilians. like, if this happened in a war it would be considered horrific. and yet in the united states, it’s just a part of life.
