The Barn

“When they pack up her house, a photograph will fall from the pages of a novel, carving arcs in the air as it drifts to the carpet. Pictured is an old falling-down barn. No one alive knows that this barn was built on the foundation of an even older falling-down barn, after it too fell down. No photographs, no paintings of that older structure exist, the thatched roof, the wattle and daub walls. No living soul heard the crack and the pop of the flames or remembers the charred east corner . . .”

Yes thanks @NRA. Who cares if kids are traumatized as long as you can sell a gun to every lunatic that wants one?

The school shooting in Santa Clarita has me shook. This is what our kids go through so that the #NRA and conspiracy assholes can have as many weapons in as many hands as possible. #DoSomething #santaclaritashooting #MomsDemandAction
