We Make Me Sad: America, Land of Fear and Home of the Unbrave
It’s too bad, but these laws would never work here. Why? We lack courage. We’re a nation of fear, preferring to live in bunkers that insulate our hearts, souls, and minds from the “dangerous” other. Our gun laws, more than anything else I think, show our lack of empathy and sympathy, as well as our still-present need to learn diversity. We inhabit our own spaces such that there is no room to deeply understand the other. This feeds our fear and our need for guns.
