Two weeks, two mass shootings.

Less than two weeks after the murders at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, there's been another massacre. This time, it was a bar in Thousand Oaks, California. Twelve dead. Most of them young, because it was college night. One of the dead survived the Las Vegas shooting last year. They've only just finished burying their dead in Pittsburgh, and now it's already time for another round of funerals, candlelight vigils, thoughts and prayers, and still nothing will change. This is who we are.

Meanwhile, there is still hope that things will change for the better. The midterm elections gave the Democrats back the House, although the Republicans still have the Senate. That was expected. But the Democrats won seats in very red districts all across the country (including Virginia), and won several governors races. And some races still haven't been called! Things won't be better right away, but I think it will be very different.
