It’s nice to know that there are people who want gun control in America. You know what? Not nice, it’s great, it’s reassuring, it makes me feel like this might actually happen soon. It will happen if there are enough people who believe this and want to put an end to this.
I came across two articles in The New York Times today. These articles were published yesterday,December 4, 2015 but I saw them today.
The first one I read was “Gun Debate Yields Page One Editorial”. It talks about another article, the page one editorial of that same day, which talks about the “moral outrage and a national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.” I don’t think I’ve heard a better way to describe this, and this is exactly what it is.
I don’t understand why it took people this long to even begin thinking about this. When people are killing each other at an alarming rate, day after day; I think it’s about time to start rethinking your laws.

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.
