Feels Like a Scary Dream

March for our Lives, Jumbled Dreams, Teens Making a Difference

Do you ever have a scary dream and wake up in the middle of the night in a sweat? Well, I feel like I live in a scary dream every day with the constant mass shootings happening in our world.  No matter how much we do not want to admit it, we are all scared that one day it will happen to us.

Mass shootings have become too popular today all across the world. We are constantly seeing multiple stories on the news every day about someone or some group opening fire on a store, workplace, school, or even a home. Nothing can prepare you for that moment when it happens to you.

The Parkland shooting, Sandy Hook, Las Vegas, and so many more are just the talk we hear these days. “Oh, did you hear about that shooting?” It breaks my heart to say that this is our reality. We should be able to go to work, school, the mall, and out in public without having the fear of being shot or attacked.

People cannot act like this is not happening because that will not help solve the problem! Last April I had the privilege to meet the March for Our Lives founders while in LA for WE Day.  Their story is so inspiring and they are motivating others to make a difference, to use their voices, and to stand up and speak out to help bring an end to mass shootings.

Let’s all lend a helping hand and help to make their story known!

“Not one more. We cannot allow one more person to be killed by senseless gun violence. We cannot allow one more person to experience the pain of losing a loved one. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. We cannot allow the normalization of gun violence to continue. We must create a safe and compassionate nation for our youth to grow up in.”

Maybe our reality won’t have to be a scary dream for much longer!
