Why Should I Put My Guns Down?
Guns or Life?
Children are really beautiful aren't they? Do you remember when you first realized you were bringing a life/child into this world? Do you remember rubbing your stomach and talking to your beautiful baby? Loving and talking to you baby, attempting to keep him or her safe in the womb? You were the PROTECTOR of your child; he or she was safe while within you. However, your creation, your joy, the LOVE of your LIFE! GOD has BLESSED you and your family with your reason for living!
You want your baby to be safe and happy. Basically you want Jeffrey, Kathy, Malik or Heaven to embrace the world that you know. Unfortunately, your baby must enter a world that you are not familiar with nor do you want your baby exposed .... Violence is on the rise and that beautiful baby must enter a world that's desensitized to all the violence. Death has become the norm in today's society. Every community has unexpected violence, at one point violence was limited to the poor communities.
Today violence is everywhere there's no such thing as sacred places. Violence is in the churches, schools, playgrounds; if you can name it violence will visit. So why am I asking about putting the guns down? I am asking because I want my children and yours to live and enjoy being a child. I detest the fact that I can't allow my children to go in the front or back yard to play. I am enraged that children can't ride their bike like I did when I was a child! Where is the OUTRAGE about living in a society where violence is prevalent? Does your so-called right to bear arms outweigh the right to have a life? What about the right to pursue happiness in a thriving, encouraging and peaceful society? At what point will our children's lives become more IMPORTANT than your right to maim, paralyze and kill?
