the powerlessness of the single voice...

we all feel powerless individually.

we feel as if the floor dropped out from under us when we hear of such tragedies as the one that unfolded in Orlando.

"what can I do? I'm just one person. no one will listen to me" is the individuals mantra.

and the next is grieving, morning and giving up over the useless feeling we all get when we are powerless to commit change.

I sit at my computer and type these words feeling this feeling of helplessness to change things. to help ban assault rifles. to expand background checks. to have the fucking FBI do their god damn jobs.

we plead to the president and what does he say? "We know enough to say this was an act of terror and an act of hate," he said. "The FBI is appropriately investigating this as an act of terror. We will go wherever the facts lead us ... What is clear is he was a person filled with hatred."

maybe he's at a loss for words as well, but folks, some of THE largest massacres occurred on his watch.

and his words only make me less confident of any sort of change.

So, what needs to be done? WE need to group together and fight. WE need to demand from our congress people, let alone the president, to pass the fucking laws and have them enforced.

most of the GOP gets money from the NRA, but I can bet your ass, that there are republicans right now, people, not politicians, that are equally disgusted by this bullshit.

a bi-partisan group, formed by the people of this nation, that is apolitical. That are tired of the almost daily killings and massacres.

It's WE not I that will get it changed.

WE have to stop putting up with this. And tell the NRA to shut the fuck up when they come out with the tired response of "in this time of tragedy, now is not the time to discuss laws about guns". OH BULLSHIT. Now is the very fucking time.

WE need to fucking stand up to this contrived kind of bullshit to derail the discussion and dismantle the NRA once and for all.

Remember, it's WE the people.
