Heartbroken by the news I awoke to this morning. Yet another mass shooting taking innocent lives. Please take a moment to pause today, to pray for strength to those going through this tragedy. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. #prayfordayton #daytonohio #endviolence
Dayton news coverage:
This is the 250th mass shooting in America in 2019.
If this isn’t a wake-up call to vote and get yourself educated on politics and the people running for office, you are doing a disservice to your life. These acts are pure evil and hate.
Our hearts and prayers are with the victims of these horrible tragedies.
