This week...yet again...

This week marks another epic milestone in the America's private war.
This week there are candlelight vigils and funerals.
This week there are discussions and debate.
This week there is name calling and disgust.
This week is another week in America.

This week isn't the time to talk how we stigmatize mental health.
This week isn't the time to talk about gun control.
This week isn't the time to have an honest conversation about what the hell we are doing to ourselves as a society.

This week we send thoughts and prayers.
This week we offer platitudes.
This week we change our profile photos.
This week we "Pray for L̶a̶s̶ V̶e̶g̶a̶s̶ P̶a̶r̶k̶l̶a̶n̶d̶ Gilroy."
This week we thank the Universe it wasn't us.

This week nothing will change.

Next week we start the cycle again.
