Horrified to be an American / by Alan Strathman

Oh, no! Again! And worse than ever before! Another mass shooting in the U.S.  And this one both a terrorist attack and a hate crime. 

One this day, my one year anniversary of arriving in St. Lucia, I am wondering where I will go after my service in St. Lucia is completed. One option is to come back to the U.S. But everyday, it seems, something happens to make that possibility less likely.  In 2015 there were 372 mass shootings (defined as four or more people killed or wounded) in the U.S. An average of just over one per day.  Already in 2016 there have been 133 mass shootings in the U.S.  They can happen anywhere on any day.

If American voters elect the despicable Donald Trump, who is not at all opposed to such events when they further his cause, things will get even worse. And I won't return.

Horrified to be an American.
