It's been 5 months since the #Parkland massacre. On the 14th of the month I've been tweeting each of the portraits I drew.
Remembering #AlyssaAlhadeff.
A star soccer player. A devoted friend. One of the youngest to die.

"He was a very funny kid, outgoing and sometimes really quiet," wrote Miguel Duque, about his baby brother #MartinDuque.
What a disgrace for our country that students are murdered in school.
Remembering Martin, 5 months after his death.

Cara means "friend" in #Irish.
Cara's funeral was held on her 15th birthday.
Her father came here from Ireland to pursue the American dream.

Heartbreaking.

.@PiattPatti's son died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

"Watching others lose a child and knowing what they feel brings it all back. I don't have a problem with responsible gun ownership, but there is nothing responsible about owning an AR-15."

"If we want teachers to have to ability to make offensive measures, why not non-lethal weapons? It's terrible that we would have to, but if we do, that route should not be firearms." -@TomPrigg2018

Lost in the turn of #ParklandShooting into a gun control issue is how it was ALSO yet another mass killing by a young man exhibiting far-right hate online.

Since 2014, 50 Americans have been killed and 82 injured by such shooters.

Need to view via lens of national security...
#CommonSenseGunLaws are important.
Support for mental health issues is important.
But we also need to recognize another cancer has been empowered in recent years, that should be viewed thru lens of extremism/terrorism.

Yet, our political system/media is in active denial of it.
The inclination political leaders to be partisan and those in media "even-handed" is clouding this dangerous issue. Notice how even to talk about it means there will automatically then be a faux whataboutism on the "violent left," even though there is no paralell data to back it
