“Today is the Jewish Sabbath. It is the last day of Passover. It is the six-month anniversary of the hate-fueled mass murder of Jews worshipping in Pittsburgh. And, it is another day of a mass shooting, this time at a synagogue near San Diego.
“We cannot remain the only nation in the world where these events spark momentary outrage but then a collective shrug that nothing can be done. We must defeat hate in all forms. We must come to terms that we are awash in too-easily attained guns. We need a national reckoning as to what our collective nonchalance has led us to.”
