Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning were terrible times for the people of El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. In both cases, a shooter opened fire and killed more than one person in the 249th and 250th mass shooting shoots of the year. The whole country is mourning now, and there is already a great debate that we can stop weapons.
In a recent Facebook post, the pop singer Lady Gaga has penned a heart-melting note and she has announced her plat to fund some project for to mass shooting victims. She wrote:
“A note to Dayton, El Paso, and Gilroy:
My heart goes out to those who were taken from us too soon and to their families, loved ones, and communities who are left to grieve. Everyone has the right to laws that make them feel safe in their communities. In this moment, I want to channel my confusion, frustration, and fury into hope. Hope that we are there for each other and for ourselves.
Today, I find hope in the work of DonorsChoose.org and I’m proud to partner with them and with Born This Way Foundation to fully fund the classroom project needs in Dayton, OH, El Paso, TX, and Gilroy, CA. 14 classrooms in Dayton, 125 classrooms in El Paso, and 23 classrooms in Gilroy will now have access to the support they need to inspire their students to work together and bring their dreams to life. https://www.donorschoose.org/bekind21″
The singer said they are members of donorchoose.org that provide material to the classes in need, and their own partners of the Born This Way Foundation. She continued:
“Surviving and recovering from these tragedies also means prioritizing your mental health and checking in on your loved ones. If you’re struggling, please be brave and tell a trusted someone. Don’t be scared to ask for help, I beg you. If you see a loved one struggling, please be brave and reach out, remind them it’s ok to not be ok, and listen to them. We cannot turn away from ourselves. We cannot turn away from our loved ones. We need each other. Don’t turn away.
In loving memory of the victims of the tragic shootings in Dayton, OH, El Paso, TX, and Gilroy, CA.”
