As the bitter realities of Texas become known, one individual decided to create a game where you fight massacres solely armed with thoughts and prayers.
In the wake of yet another mass shooting in America, we search for answers, and indeed the reasons why the latest narrative is the same as the one previous, as a white male turned an assault weapon on his fellow Americans, the push on social media has quickly slipped to the collective donation of thoughts and prayers the world over.

Our hearts break for all those in Sutherland Springs. Boston’s thoughts and prayers are with Texas during this terrible time.

The calls for gun control are there too, but clearly the preferred way forward is through thoughts and prayers. For those of you interested in how many thoughts and how many prayers it takes to salve a mass shooting, well wonder no more, as someone on the internet has created a game to find out the base number.
