A Real Sickness Afflicts Our Land

As the story of an 11 year old who got off her school bus and was shot. In Tennessee.  Today.  On the first day of school.

An 11-year-old Tennessee girl was shot and killed on Monday. Authorities told WKRN the girl got off her school bus at her Hendersonville home. When she went inside, she told her father she had been shot. The girl’s father took her to TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center. She was then flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. She died less than two hours later, WKRN reports. Det. Jim Vaughn with Hendersonville police told WSMV the shooting did not happen on the bus, based on an interview with the bus driver. Vaughn said police believe the shooting happened between the girl getting off the bus and going into the home.

A real sickness….  Because we are all immune to it now- the shootings.  The murders.  They don’t  even move us to rage or wrath.  They don’t move us at all.  A real sickness afflicts America.  And it is a sickness unto death.

Farewell, America.  You don’t have long left now.
