"Kids should run for fun, not from guns." 24" x 36" Acrylics
"I want to preface this post by saying that I'm a supporter of the 2nd amendment and responsible gun ownership, but I also understand and empathize with those who aren't supporters. But, gun rights isn't what this post is about at all. I'm just extremely tired of people taking innocent lives---especially those of children.
I don't have solutions to the complex gun debate, BUT I do know that mental health should be a bigger focus in this country. When someone gets to the depths of depression that it takes to kill random children, there were signs. Currently, people aren't properly taught to spot these signs or they simply don't take them seriously. Awareness and knowledge saves lives and I implore the world to stop treating mental health as a stigma so that we can openly speak about and teach methods to prevent these things from happening in the future."
