Thank you to Brigitte Martin for sharing this artwork on Crafthaus. The tragedy of this week has brought the cost of gun violence to even greater visibility.

The loss of the individuals killed is evident, but the cost of gun violence costs each person in the U.S. $700 a year.   Right $700 dollars a year for every person in the US. This is a cost that can not be ignored. Nor can we say that the cost of gun violence does not affect us because is happened in another community, city, or state.
This short video explains it quickly.
