Like many of you on the East Coast, I woke up this morning to the terrible news of the massacre in Las Vegas.
I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
What kind of madman would perch above a crowd and open fire?
As I read through the news reports, the only word that came to mind was horror.
I can’t imagine the terror and grief family and friends of those brutally gunned down must be feeling this morning.
But in the face of unspeakable horror, there are those who despicably race forward to politicize this terrible event before the bodies are even counted.
What is wrong with these people?
Just stop. Stop!
Families may still not know if their loved ones are alive or dead and you are politicizing this?
For God’s sake show some basic human compassion and stop!
Sensible gun control NOW.

Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.

I see the left didn't even wait until the bodies were cold before exploiting this massacre. #GunControlNow

We don’t know much about this shooter Stephen Paddock.
So please, stop speculating and treating this like some kind of parlor game.
Are we even made of human parts anymore?
There are over fifty people dead and more than four hundred injured.
And none of them suffered this fate so we could have another reason to snipe at each other from our political sides.
Steven Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter, is a consequence of the hatred that Donald Trump has awakened not just in the US, but the world.

Have you no decency?
Are empathy and compassion not part of your make-up?
This evil man who committed this act isn’t the only one lacking humanity here.
How hard is it to consider the grief and pain of those who lost loved ones in this massacre?
Can we all please just stop?
This isn’t about Donald Trump. And it isn’t a “narrative” you can exploit for your political causes.
Can we please just for 24 hours shut the hell up and consider the lives forever altered by this horrific event?
They are not political footballs; they are human beings with families and friends who are grieving.
We’re better than this.
Or at least we should be.
So please, just stop.
