Walmart staff deserve credit

I have been riveted to the tragic news from El Paso, and as a tiny good takeaway from this horrible crime, all accounts report that the Walmart staff performed in a stellar style. They endangered themselves although shepherding hundreds of shoppers to security. God bless you and your excellent efforts to thwart this despicable criminal.

Stress legislators to do a thing

I will vote for President Donald Trump in 2020. In truth, I will vote for any candidate who pledges to ban assault weapons.

These weapons do not even call for superior marksmanship to do extreme harm. They are additional like bombs than guns. They do not give any hope for survival. They are weapons that only soldiers really should use. If we want to at least do a single tiny factor to avoid mass shootings, let’s commence by banning these horrible weapons of war for use in the civilian globe. Let’s be sensible. Let’s be rational.

By the way, Trump is not a “candidate.” He’s the president and is supposed to care about all Americans, not just his “base” supporters. Stress him and all our legislators to do a thing constructive to avoid mass shootings!

This is not the time for politics

I am asking Beto O’Rourke to leave and go back to the campaign trail. He is carrying out additional to tear El Paso apart suitable now than President Donald Trump ever did. Are you listening to his hateful speech? Just about every camera he sees he requires benefit of to spew additional hate-filled words. If he thinks this is going to support him win the nomination, I believe he had improved cease and listen to the words coming out of his mouth. This was not a time for politics, but he could not support himself.

El Paso is exclusive in friendliness, acceptance

I have been to a lot of cities all more than North America and Europe, but El Paso has often had a specific spot in my heart simply because of its exclusive friendliness and acceptance of other people.

The senseless tragedy that struck El Paso has shaken me with grief simply because of its innocence. It is a proud city connected closely to two nations that is a single of the safest cities in the globe. No city ever deserves to endure by way of the trauma of a mass murder, but if any city can rebound and come back even stronger, it is the city of El Paso.

I have been to El Paso dozens of occasions for athletic contests, buying, dining, entertainment and overnight stays traveling to the west coast. I appear forward to my subsequent check out to my Dear El Paso.

Politicians acting childish

In no way in my life have I observed politicians act in a petty, churlish and childish way as some of the politicians acted toward the folks of El Paso. Even though the city grieved, these supposed adults took their personal agenda to a new low. Rather than standing as a single, they applied their agenda as an insult to absolutely everyone else.

They showed absolutely everyone what is incorrect with our nation. They would not even be quiet and let factors function out. Their selfish agenda was additional significant than a grieving city. They spent time bashing our president rather than displaying respect for the victims. They really should be ashamed of their actions.

There is a time and spot for all actions and this is not the time for the behavior that was shown by these politicians. They could not place their variations aside for a single day to honor the fallen but had to make a large production of their pettiness. I hope the voters will keep in mind this the subsequent time their names show up on the ballot.
