I feel for you. I live in Florida. I am terrified every time I leave the house. We have had so many threats thwarted, many the public never hears anything about. We are sick, and we are living in denial. You can’t go to work, shop, a movie, have dinner, drive in your car on the highway, go to college, go to the library or go to a concert. FL seems to be ground zero for mass shootings. America has a shooting problem. Our young men have problems. They have anger and coping issues. America has a gun problem. Our society has mental health/care issues. I am afraid too. I’m afraid because we are in denial. Denial delays fixing our problems. Until we admit America is sick, its healing can never occur.
