REMEMBERING SANTA MONICA’S DAY OF TERROR
Yesterday, was the first anniversary of the shooting at and near Santa Monica College. Our beautiful city joined the host of others that have endured the chaos and carnage associated with such tragedies.
Today is also the birthday of Gabby Giffords, who was tragically injured in a 2011 shooting in Tucson that also killed six. Both Gabby’s shooting and then the tragedy at Sandy Hook that claimed 28 lives (most of them children) spurred talk of action on gun legislation, but nothing happened. In fact it seems we have gone backwards with states liberalizing gun laws and ammo-sexuals bringing their arsenals to local eateries.
This was my attempt to reflect on these events and put it into perspective.
