#StopGunViolence

Do you know what one of the most leading cause of premature death in the U.S is? Well, gun violence is one of the most leading cause of premature death in the U.S. Guns kill at least more than 38,000 people and cause nearly 85,000 injuries each year. There is this organization called APHA is a longtime supporter of violence prevention policies, especially with gun-related violence and APHA acknowledges an inclusive public health approach to addressing this growing crisis is necessary for good causes.

The issue of gun violence is complex and deeply rooted in our culture, which is why we must take a public health approach to ensure our families and communities are safe. We must focus more on the emphasis on improving gun injury and violence research. Conducting research will be a good first step in figuring out what is wrong in the present and how to prevent future ferocities. There would need to be ongoing work needed to ensure firearms do not fall into the wrong hands and to allow access to mental health services to the ones who need it most. Mental health is a personal issue but it should be a private issue and it should be shared with the public.

To end this on a good not, guns should just go. Period.  #StopGunViolence

Another Wal-Mart Sleight of Hand

I really had a problem with Mainwaring using Wal-Mart as a good corporate citizen. Their practices have been questionable in many areas. Once more, Wal-Mart shows that sleight of hand is alive and well in America. Wal-Mart has launched a urban wildlife revitalization campaign in five major cities. It shows their concern for the environment.
However, what the public may or may not know is that Wal-Mart has been selling furniture since 2007 that was made from lumber logged illegally from habitats protected for Siberian tigers. When Wal-Mart got caught they promised to stop…by 2013. How much damage is being done, all the while people think Wal-Mart is helping the environment?
