Maytal Cohen started this petition to President Donald J. Trump

I have finally overcome a deep dark depression I’ve struggled with for the past 5 years, and I was beginning to enjoy the beauty of life again. Until I woke up to my friends and family’s missed calls and texts asking if I was okay. On November 7th, 2018 another mass shooting took place in the United States. This time it was at my home. My heart breaks a little bit more each time I hear of events like these. I cannot physically and emotionally take any more. I know that goes for my peers and communities around the U.S. as well. Events such as these are hard to accept and understand. A big reason that causes my depression is that my soul does not want to accept the world we have all collectively created. A suffering world. I have accepted the fact that this is our world. And now I want to take responsibility for it. I don’t know if me pouring my heart out for this petition description will create much change. But I want to put the energy out there that we, us humans, are not understanding something crucial to our collective well being and happiness. I do believe a lot of us have accepted that, and the next step is to take responsibility and act differently. Because, clearly, what we are doing is not to our best benefit. I am a 21 and 1/2 year old woman born and raised in beautiful California. I need a ray of hope for our society to be better. We all need a ray of hope. Because we are all suffering. If there is something, anything we can do to lighten that suffering then by all means let’s do it. What have we go to lose, really? I truly believe with all my heart that people do not need to have the unnecessary power of guns at their fingertips. Make gun rules more strict. Take the guns away. DO SOMETHING! I cannot hear about another mass shooting story or I will officially die inside. Come on America, Stop the Violence. No Guns Needed here.
