Over the weekend, two devastating mass shootings took place. The first shooting in El Paso, Texas, left at least 20 people dead. The most recent shooting in Dayton, Ohio, took the lives of 9 people, one victim being the shooters 22-year-old sister. Many celebrities took to social media to share their reactions to the tragic shootings that took many innocent lives.
My heart, love & strength go out to El Paso. Victims and their families. Grateful to our first responders. Stay strong as we’re forced to heal yet again. What leader will step up to command wiser/effective talks? Not sure what the answers are but it all starts with open dialogue.

My heart breaks for the city of El Paso. The madness never ends. It is all too much. There‘a nowhere safe from the terror of gun violence in the United States of America. We are a broken nation trapped in the darkness of our unwillingness to ask ourselves why this keeps happening

My heart goes out to the people of El Paso. Let us never become numb to this. This is not normal. It should never be normal.

My heart aches for El Paso and Dayton. Our nation is experiencing these traumas far too often and we need our leaders to take urgent action: take these weapons of war off the street and fight the evil ideology of white nationalism that motivates many of these terrorists.

I am sick to my stomach over what has happened in El Paso today. I can’t believe this is happening in my country and no one is doing anything about it. Who has to die for laws to change?

Just saw the news. I can’t be funny today. I am so sorry for #ElPaso and sorry for my nation which lacks the backbone to rid itself of this cancer once and for all.
