Why do people constantly post on FB about how their hearts are in Connecticut? It just seems so shallow and self-serving. Why is everything about YOU?

Donate money to the Jim Brady fund. Volunteer. Do something.

No one cares that you are hugging your kids tight. Go do it. It doesn't mean MORE that you told your 459 FB friends about it. It doesn't make you a better person.

If you want to sit down and have an IRL conversation about gun laws and working on politicians who accept $$$$ from the NRA, then OK, I'm in.

(and yes, I see the irony of my posting, I am just hoping that someone will explain why people feel the need to post these meaningless and self-centered comments.)
