The World We Are Creating for Children so that Anyone Who Wants to Can Buy Any Gun They Want To…

November 20, 2018

This story describing a 12 year olds farewell letter to his mother as he waited in fear as the result of “a threat that didn’t prove to be credible” appeared in our local newspaper this morning… Here’s a heart-wrenching excerpt:

As 12-year-old Ajani Dartiguenave sat on the floor of his classroom Nov. 9, he pulled a pencil from his bookbag and tearfully asked a friend for a sheet of paper…

“Dear mom,” Ajani wrote. “Right now I am scared to death. I need a warm soft hug. I will miss you … I hope that you are going to be OK with me gone.”

He wrote his address at the top, in case someone else had to make sure his farewell went to the right mother.

When I was 12, I was not worried about school shootings…. but when Ajani’s mom was 12, Columbine happened and more that 9/11, Columbine rocked everyone’s word…. and since then, despite all of the school shootings and mass murders that have occurred since then thanks to the politicians unwillingness to limit the ready availability of guns designed to kill other human beings.

Someday, someone will arrange to have every 12 year old like Ajani compose a letter to their legislator explaining why they live in fear when they attend school… and have those letters combined with letters from churchgoers, movie goers, concert attendees, and people in all walks of life who live with a degree of fear because someone who wants to own a gun that kills other humans is allowed to buy it.
