And fashion designer Nicky Hilton wrote, “In the 274 days of 2015, there have been 293 mass shootings. Today’s shooting in Oregon marks the 294th. This must stop”.
I can’t imagine what the families of UCC are going through. The world is rising up to hold you in the light. I hope you can feel our love.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) October 1, 2015
The Oregon massacre is the latest school shooting to rock America following similar gun atrocities at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012, and Arapahoe High School in Denver, Colorado, in 2013.
