Dear Mr. McConnell
It is hard to not be numb to another shooting. I am so blown away by the young adults from the Florida High School who have turned into activists overnight. Their voices are inspiring yet there is no doubt that the mental anguish that these kids are suffering is something that we only see in small cracks yet I am sure they are huge gashes.
My niece is 15. She has become more civic-minded every day. She is aghast about what is happening in our country and with our inept Government, and I might be going out on a limb here but there will probably be a lot more words to describe our Government in the weeks and months to come. Her only connection to Government is the Obama years and she was a fan. No drama, compassion, empathy, and leadership vs what we have now.
She shared with me a letter she wrote to Mitch McConnell and said I could blog about it. She is extremely upset about the multiple shootings in schools. If you have not talked to any kids in her age group, it gives all of us a little insight into what they are thinking about.
