Gamers Call for Ceremonial Ceasefire in Memory of School Shooting

Some gamers are calling for an online cease-fire following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, reported The Wrap on Wednesday. 

In a video posted to YouTube, GamerFitNation CEO Antwand Pearman asked gamers to agree to not play shooter games on Friday as a tribute to the 26 people killed by shooter Adam Lanza. An emotional Pearman told gamers, “What am I asking for? I’m asking for a demonstration – a demonstration of peace… I’m asking for a day, just one day, from 12-12, when you just don’t play online shooters.”
