Another Day in the Death of America: A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives - Gary Younge
A seasoned journalist in the U.K., Gary Younge decided to see how many children in America were killed by gunfire over the course one calendar day, November 23rd 2013. Heartbreaking and infuriating all at once, we are allowed inside the lives of parents who have lost their children too early in life. Each story not only looks at the prevalence of gun culture in America, but also examines how our society writ-large either helps us or fails us, by researching the life circumstances of the ten children who died on that random day. This book is a good choice for anyone who questions whether and how gun control measures can reduce gun violence, and what the social realities are at the heart of this contentious issue.
