I can’t read anymore news.
I can’t watch another video.
I can’t go give blood.
I can’t stop weeping at random times.
And I can’t blog today…
What I can do is help in anyway that I am able so I have donated to Las Vegas gofundme.com, and I urge you to do the same. I gave on behalf of all the lives lost in Las Vegas on Sunday night, within the 59 we have 3, confirmed Canadians. People just going to a music festival, living life, believing they were free to do so…
But as long as there are guns, and leaders who don’t value life, but value greed, and money and their seats in government more than human life, there will be no real freedom. Because from where I sit when we live our lives in fear; that maybe next time it will be the event I’m attending where a madman opens fire, then I’m sorry, but that’s not being free.
I can help those who still haven’t heard from loved ones who were in attendance to prayerfully find them by posting this number: Monday night Las Vegas police changed the phone number people should call when looking to report missing loved ones to 1-800-536-9488.
For my American followers who can vote, who can make the change that your great country needs, so I urge you to vote against the senators and congress people who think the gun laws are fine the way they are next time you go cast your ballot.
As Miley Cyrus and Adam Sandler sang Dido’s moving song last night on Jimmy Fallon
“There’s no love without freedom, there’s no freedom without love…”
Love isn’t weapons of mass destruction. Love isn’t taking medical away from the poor, the old, and children. Love isn’t sitting up high, not really fazed because you don’t know anybody who lost their lives in a senseless act of gun violence. Turning a blind eye to all these things is the opposite of love, and those who say it isn’t the time to talk politics lack empathy. Gun violence is directly linked to politics. And so, this Canadian woman, mother, wife, daughter, and lover of people will continue to talk about the gun issue in the country I also call home.
