    I find it interesting that peoples first reactions are to tweet about hearing gun shots and to complain about how it is too noisy. It is even more shocking that people can see this as a habitual and normalized event in their lives. I would hope that, if ever in this position, that my initial reaction would be to wonder if anyone was immediately injured by the shots fired, quickly followed by a call to the police. I hope that there are more people who would make that decision as well, to be proactive and not passive. This should not be an acceptable societal norm that people in the Kalamazoo County go through. Until we make the decision that this behavior is not accepted here, it will continue to develop and hurt those around us.

    Maybe the Western Herald can reach out and do a Public Service Announcement on how to be proactive again gun violence in their community.
