Normally I do not take part in campaigns that happen around the web. Especially those that I feel the media will spin (if it hasn’t already) out of control. But tomorrow is different. Tomorrow is a day for change and a chance for gamers around the world to come together and say NO to violence. A chance for us as a community, to take a stand against not only the injustice that happened last Friday in Connecticut, but crimes that are committed in our towns, cities, and backyards every day.

 

Do not be misinformed; in no way are we blaming video games for these tragedies. We are simply choosing to lay down our virtual arms to show our respect for the victims in Connecticut and to let others know any form of violence should not and WILL not be tolerated. Please read the official statement from CEO of Gamer Fit Nation, Antwand Pearman:

 

GamerFitNation Inc’s CEO Antwand Pearman is calling for a “DAY OF CEASE FIRE” on all online shooters on Friday, December 21st, 2012. We ask for Gamers to show their support for the families of those who lost there lives in the tragedy that took place in a Connecticut’s Sandy Hook elementary school Friday, December 14, 2012. Post on this Event Page that you will “Cease Fire” For the day. Where 26 people were shot dead, 20 of which were young children. We are not asking for money, if you feel the need to donate I’m sure there are places that will be made available for you.

We are simply making a statement that we as Gamers are not going to sit back and ignore the lives that were lost. Instead we will embrace the families with our love and support. So if you are an owner of a website I ask that you post to your readers that you will join us in our “DAY OF CEASE FIRE FOR ONLINE SHOOTERS” I ask you all to please share and I thank you for reading. This starts Thursday night, Friday morning at 12am and will in Friday night, Saturday morning at 12am.
