We must try to stop mass killings .. just, at least, try.

mass killings 3Just as everyone else is feeling, my heart is heavy thinking of the children and teachers killed last Friday.  Surely, we can think of ways to lessen these events.  We must.  I googled information on shootings and found much information.  A listing of 28 mass killings of six or more people was given by Newsmax.com.  Mother Jones magazine states that 61 mass shootings  have occurred in the last 30 years.

For more information about curbing gun violence (not taking away your guns), go to www.bradycampaign.org.   It’s slogan is “We are better than this.”

This QuiltToon is 10″ X 12″ and is machine pieced and top-stitched.  It was made in response to a Reader Challenge in Quilting Arts Magazine to “Map It Out.”

About QuiltToonist

I'm a news junkie and have opinions about everything! I consider myself a folk artist because I have no formal art training and use the sewing skills I learned many moons ago to accomplish the fiber art I seem to have to express.

    Such a poignant image — the flag says a lot about the feeling of being worn down and out by these horrendous events. I like your choice of black. A classic.
