This Should Hurt (an update)

Vegas5It’s been nearly two months since the horrific tragedy in Las Vegas. In that short space of time:

Leah Brown * Colwin Henderson * Tremel Dean (Kansas); Crysta Proctor * Connie Carrera * Jose Aguilera * Justin Yates (Arizona); Doug Ferguson *Lisa Cosenza * Robert Bill * Hayley Flores * Joseph McHugh III * Barbara Glisan * Michelle McFayden * Diana Steele * Danny Elliot * (California); Ewell Yona *Giovan Diaz (Georgia); Annabelle Pomeroy * Emily Garcia * Brooke Ward * Joann Ward * Karla Holcombe * Bryan Holcombe *Crystal Holcombe * Marc Holcombe * Noah Holcombe * Emily Hill * Megan Hill * Greg Hill * Richard Rodriquez * Peggy Warden * LuLu White * Haley Krueger * Robert Corrigan * Shani Corrigan * Dennis Johnson, Jr. * Sara Johnson * R. Scott Marshall * Karen Marshall * Tara McNulty * Richard Rodriquez * Theresa Rodriquez * Keith Warden * John Holcombe * Farida Brown * Ryland Ward * David Colbath * Hailey McNulty * James McNulty * Rosa Solis * Kris Workman * Joaquin Ramirez * Debbie Braden * Bob Braden * Zachary Poston * Julie Workman (Texas).

This is only a partial list of the firearm fatalities. Mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers, cousins, uncles, aunts, grandparents…friends. Part of our communities. Each with a story. Each with a potential.

All gone.

And from the President and Congress all we continue to hear are “hearts and prayers, hearts and prayers.”
