Remembering Parkland - a Year after the School Massacre

It was a year-ago today that tragedy unfolded at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Broward County, Florida. Seventeen students and staff were killed at a mass shooting.

Instead of exchanging niceties and chocolates on Valentines Day, 2018, students at the United States (US) high school, wept and mourned over the blood of their innocent peers and teachers, who had fallen to a mass killers bullets within their institution of education.

That horror in Parkland a year-ago has joined places like Columbine, Sandy Hook and others in becoming deathly synonyms of arenas of the too often occurrence of  mass gun violence in the US.

"March for Our Lives" the rallying cry borne out of the Parkland tragedy has touched the entire nation to bringing attention to the easy access and ready availability of guns in America. Yet, a year after Parkland, there have been no major changes made to gun laws across the US.

So today, in remembering Parkland and that the lives of all innocent victims of gun violence may not have been lost in vain, the banner should again be raised to renewing efforts toward common sense gun laws in the US.
