Gamers call for “Cease Fire” to Honor Victims
An online movement is calling for a day of “cease fire” on Friday, where gamers put down their controllers in honor of the victims in Newtown. Antwand Pearman, the CEO of Gamer Fit Nation, is the man behind this call for action. He says he doesn’t believe video games cause violence but thinks the community should put down their virtual guns in a moment of silence.
“It’s not about politics, it’s about a sense of us being human,” he told HLN’s Evening Express.
