At 1am this morning, there was a mass shooting in the Oregon District of downtown Dayton. 9 people plus the shooter were killed, and many more were injured. The police were able to put an end to the shooting in roughly 30 sec since they were actively patrolling the area. This was the second mass shooting across the country in the last 48 hours. This has been a rough year for Dayton. We, as a city, are still recovering from the rain of tornados that hit us just a few months ago.
The world is a scary place, and it just seems to be getting worse. I don’t know what the solution is, but one principle seems to ring true for me. Treat people how you want to be treated, and live a life of kindness.
Life is too precious for it to be filled with hatred and prejudice. We are all equal.
