"How many more people, how many more children, must die before members of Congress and President Trump acknowledge that assault weapons have no place on the streets of our country? Will this nation ever unlock itself from the grip of the NRA, which has turned the Republican Party and the president into political pawns?
Trump went on national television Thursday morning to offer condolences and prayers to Parkland, Fla., victims.
'No child, no teacher, should ever be in danger in an American school,' he said. 'Today we mourn for all of those who lost their lives.' And, to the nation’s children, he said, 'I want you to know you are never alone and never will be.'
Such pablum." ~ www.mercurynews.com

Kind of a strange image for this Valentine's Day/Ash Wednesday, don't you think? On the other hand, it seems strange to me anyway that they share the same day. How often does that happen? Still, I don't suppose it's all that strange, since the earth always has been my first love and, as we are reminded on Ash Wednesday, all things that come from the earth eventually return to it. So let me wish the earth and you a very happy St. Valentine's Day as well as a most profoundly meaningful Ash Wednesday. :-)
