This caused me to pause and really think. What a powerful message.

What a powerful cartoon. So sad.

Well done, Mr. Branco.

No words needed. The sadness is overwhelming.

Very powerful visual commentary. This is one of Branco’s best.

    Wondering if the ‘fallen angel’ under the tree, that has its light extinguished, symbolizes the shooter.

    Adam Lanza was once a 5 year old kid too and how the ingestion of violent dark video games, etc, plus his parents’ conflicts, divorce, the mother’s fears and focus on guns may have contributed to his mindset and actions.

Count the angels on the Christmas tree…including the fallen one. Tony Branco is far more than an artist.

First Branco cartoon that didn’t make me chuckle. Well done.

Hey, Professor, Here is the site to nominate Branco for the Pulitzer Prize. Very well done.
