I went to the movie with my son last week, and as we waited for the trailers to begin, it went through my mind: What if a guy came in and started shooting?

I had never thought that before, but I really didn’t think it would happen.

Not to me.

But it could. It could happen to me. My son could be killed and I live. That random, insane, incomprehensible scenario is reality in America. While I feel safe because I live in South Dakota, there are parents in Chicago texting their son as he is on lockdown.

What would you do if your child was killed? This isn’t just about mass shooting; it’s about America’s romance with firearms. Just as this is a many-leveled problem, it should have many layers of solutions.

But do something.

Enough is enough.

  1. In addition to a “romance with firearms,” there is the anxiety and fear that accompanies escalating economic inequality. It turns us into a scapegoat society. Stress pushes the weakest ones over the edge.
