I wanted this to be a happy Christmas, but it doesn’t look like it when everyday I wake up seeing news about another mass shooting. According to the New York Times Daily Briefing, “Records show that, on average, there is a mass shooting every day in the U.S.”
If this isn’t alarming to U.S. citizens, I don’t know what is, and something needs to be done NOW. Don’t wait for the next government to do something, don’t think about it; this has to stop. We need gun control, not later, NOW.
We are all dealing with our own problems, but we don’t have to take them out on others. Where is all this hatred coming from?
Where is the love?
Where is this world that our ancestors built for us going? Where is this world we want to build for future generations going?

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
