Another Massacre of Innocents: It’s Time to Roar with Our Votes

Wednesday, May 25, 2022

With another massacre of innocent school children and personnel, how can we not stand together and demand action and accountability?

Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Green Party and others, it’s time to roar with our votes. At the village level, the federal level, and everywhere in between, anyone running for an elected office must go on record as to whether they support stricter gun laws and a ban on military assault style weapons being sold to the public.

Go to political rallies, town hall meetings, state fairs, everywhere candidates campaign and ask for our support. Say, “No. Not until you pledge in writing to work across party lines to end the gun violence insanity across our nation.”

For anyone who refuses to do so, add their names to a national list of persons who do not deserve our votes. Share that list with social media, billboards, church bulletins, and local newspapers, and do so relentlessly. Week after week. Day after day as elections days approach.

It’s time to roar. Ask. Write. Call. Then VOTE!

This blog was originally titled "Drifting Toward Planet Elderly," and it shared a journey I had with my elderly parents as they both finished their lives battling the complexities of dementia. After both passed on, I changed the title to "Living on Planet Elderly." I am a retiree who is reluctantly adjusting to the reality that she is now elderly. In July of 2021, I relocated to Middleton WI after living in Columbia MO for over 40 years. I'll go back and visit friends and family in Columbia, and I hope they will visit me. I decided that I want to experience a new and vibrant location in a cooler climate with lakes...a bucket list item of mine. I have a first cousin who lives in Madison. We have nice childhood memories, and it will be wonderful to spend some time together as elders. A new chapter begins. It's my last chapter.
