The blood of innocents

Dear President Trump.  Thank you for your sensitivity and compassion towards the victims of the Nevada shooting.  I pray this tragedy sensitizes you to other tragedies around the world and among our own citizens.  Your press officer refused to speak to questions of gun control following the shooting saying it was not a time for politics.  But, dear political enemy of mine, the blood of innocents cries out for mercy and justice in the face of wholesale slaughter at the hands of a fantastically well armed lone gunman.  I pray you will let us know when our time of mourning transforms into a time for action.  Perhaps we can do better than simply making it easier to buy silencers to protect killers’ ears.  May God keep making you and me better stewards of our respective trusts.   1
