Deadly Weekend- Mass Shootings in America the New Norm
In my city this past weekend marked the end of summer vacation. Students would return to school on Monday. Bustling crowds of back to school shoppers could be found at every major retailer. The chaos of stressed out parents and kids searching for the last pair of school uniform pants enveloped the coastal empire. Local barbershops and salons had overflowing parking lots late into Sunday evening. If you got close enough you could almost hear the buzz of clippers crafting hair into art for the first day of school. In my city the normal yearly rituals of school preparation went on without incident. We were fortunate. The same can't be said for the residents of El Paso,Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Both cities became sites of the latest mass shootings.
