KILLING JEWS IN THE SYNAGOGUE
Yesterday, Saturday morning, Oct. 27, 2018, Robert Bowers, 46, walked into the Tree of Life synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA, and killed 11 people in cold blood, just because he claimed Jews were behind the refugees coming from Latin America. He was finally caught and arrested. This is lunacy!
I thought this type of tragedy only happened in the old country or during medieval times, or in primitive societies. Well, it happened in the States too. We are not as advanced as I thought. How sad!
I am angry and disappointed. We desperately need to foster mutual respect and promote gun control as top national priorities. Who will step up to the plate now? I don't see Pres. Trump doing it.
