Guns are bad, mmmkay?
I'm a cryer by nature, so it's not really surprising that the photo Yoko Ono tweeted made me tear up. The surprising part, for me, was the unexpected depth of emotion that it gave me. It made my heart race, throat constrict, and tears immediately sprang up. Maybe it's because I didn't ever expect to see it, maybe it's because I've loved John Lennon since I was little, but seeing a picture of his bloody glasses caught me totally off guard.
I totally understand the point she's trying to make, but I can't help but feel like the people that follow her (since she Tweeted the photo) are for the most part pretty anti-gun already.
