There are not adequate words to describe days like these. Our hearts are broken for the children in Noblesville who were exposed to gun violence in their middle school. This is the third Friday in a row we have begun our day with a horrific school shooting: on May 11th, a shooting occurred at Highland High School in Palmdale, California; on May 18th, 10 were killed at Sante Fe High School in Texas; and today it happened at Noblesville Middle School. The question for all of us: How many more?
Next Friday on June 1st, Moms Demand Action will host a Wear Orange event on the Monroe County Courthouse Lawn at Noon to honor those that have lost their lives to gun violence. We hope you will make some time to remember and honor all of those that have lost their lives, as we also honor those that have given their lives in service to our country this weekend.
And if you missed it last year, please take a moment to reflect on the essay written by our own Matthew Bumbalough about Memorial Day and 'The Last Roll Call.'
