“The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, when a 20-year-old monster fatally shot 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult staff members.”

For several hundred years, the U.S. Government, U.S. Army and the American Society murdered thousands if not millions of innocent Native Americans, which would include infants, children and teens; this type of history is truth, reality and not forgotten by the Sovereign Nations.

Look at your baby, look at your child, look at your teen, do you want to bury them? No, no you do not want them killed and for sure you do not want to bury them.

Twenty children killed by a monster, for the Indian it brings back a tragic and hateful historical memory and how do you think the parents, grandparents and other relatives of those 20 children felt?

Yes, I know and realize that any mass shooting is tragic but forgive me if I don’t agree with the national news headlines that declare any type of shooting the worse in our history because in my own personal opinion, the murder of 20 children, babies if you will, in my mind, in my heart, will always be the most evil, heartbreaking and horrifying killing in our modern times history.

On Wednesday, February 21, 2018 the Elko Daily Free Press headline read: "Security boosted at Elko schools after threat closes high school."

What went through my mind Wednesday morning as I listened to the phone call from the school as I watched my two youngest grandchildren head out to catch the bus? Why weren’t all the schools shut down? Do people understand what the word diversion means?

Gun laws do not stop the mentally disturbed, the racial profilers nor the racial haters or the political clowns who promote hate towards people of color. Many of these people know and are trained in how to use bombs, swords, machetes, knives and other weapons, it’s what they promote.

Think about it, you love your children, stop electing the wrong people.
