今年的二月十四日可能是美国历史上最让人心痛的情人节,十七个佛罗里达 Parkland 高中的师生丧生于自动步枪。事发后无数该校学生发声,公开要求国会和总统枪支管制。


他们甚至筹划三月二十四日在DC数十万人大游行 “March for Our Lives” 。至今已有美国数十大小城市、甚至欧洲国家、响应他们的呼吁,在当天同步游行,希望政府和社会大众面对这个问题,找出解决方案。

To whom it may concern:

I write to you today about an issue of concern to me and my fellow Taiwanese Americans.

Over the past decades, we have left our country of birth, Taiwan, and came to this great and proud nation of ours. We came to love this beacon of freedom and democracy that the United States is to the rest of the world.

One issue we always found difficult to support, and to reconcile with our democratic beliefs is the American gun culture. 

When a gunman killed 20 first graders and six adults with an assault rifle at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, it not only rattled Newtown, Connecticut, it reverberated across the world. Since then, there have been at least 239 school shootings nationwide. In those episodes, 438 people were shot, 138 of whom were killed. (Source: Gun Violence Archive.)

The Parkland, Florida shooting on February 14, only demonstrates that there seems to be no end to this macabre trend.

Undoubtedly, the American gun culture is a scourge upon this great land, and undoubtedly, the National Rifle Association is an enabler to this horrific culture. 

We therefore welcome the news that Delta Airlines and United Airlines have joined a growing list of companies such as Best Western, MetLife and at least a dozen other companies cutting ties with the National Rifle Association. These companies thus do away with discounts and perks for National Rifle Association members.

We ask that [YOUR COMPANY] sever ties with the National Rifle Association as well. 

Our children deserve better.

Thank you. We look forward to hearing your positive response.
