First holiday season for victims of shootings this year.

Tops Market in Buffalo, Uvalde elementary school in Texas, Club Q in Colorado Springs. For survivors and for friends and relatives of the victims, this is the first holiday season since losing their loved ones and being traumatized by the experience.

And those are only the ones that made major headlines. Across the country are hundreds of people who lost someone to gun violence. The loss will always be with them, but this year, while everyone else is celebrating, will be when they feel the loss as fresh and intense.

2. One Of Those Things That You Have To Expect While Living In America

It's not going to change much, if at all, in my lifetime. Might even get worse.

Even if laws were passed to curtail some guns, and they Won't be, it would take decades to round up all the killing machines already circulating.

4. We've Been Trying For More Than 25 Years

Things have only gotten worse.

When Nothing works, then sadly it might be time to give up.

It would be different if even the tiniest bit of progress was being made. But when even grade school kids getting massacred changes nothing, itís a sign.

5. I can't be defeatist on something that is so important.

It's just not in me.

So those of us who still care enough to keep fighting for public safety will continue, with or without you.
