We all stand unified in the disbelief and horror as to the events that have transpired within the last week. With the wounds still fresh, we as a nation mourn this senseless loss of life. These are the times that test the upper limits of our emotions and act as a reminder to all of us what it really means to be human. There are undoubtedly going to be a number of different emotions experienced, all multifaceted in their individuality. We all grieve differently, some with tears of anguish, others with tears of anger. Some may donate to shelters and families less fortunate than themselves, hold vigils and come together with quiet solidarity. Some may choose to rally together and approach laws that they believe will inhibit such an atrocious act from occurring yet again. There is NO wrong way for people to grieve.
The families that lost loved ones from this horrific tragedy have a long road ahead of them, one that they will not have to travel alone. While some express anger and resentment over the events leading to a "political debate" of sorts, they would do well to recognize these feelings are coming from a good place. True, the families need time to grieve, and it has been only a short time after these events that there base issues be addressed. But in all fairness, no amount of time will be enough for a family that lost their loved ones.
Now is the time to be reminded of what it really means to be human, to care for those around you, to do good for no other reason than it's the right thing to do, to be compassionate toward your fellow men and women and to have an unwavering sense of resolve when it it comes to others well being. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us. We may be many in our number, but times such as these urge us to act as one
