After the deadly shooting that occurred in a shopping mall this weekend, Katy Perry felt compelled to do more than just a standard reaction tweet.

The "Roar" singer is just shy of 50 million followers and she shared her opinions hoping that possibly she can help impact some change, writing:

"Is anyone else really sad about the constant stream of shootings and how normal it's becoming to see these headlines on a weekly basis? Scared to go to school? Scared to go to the mall? Scared to go to the movies? Me too. When will there be ACTUAL change? How many more?! You and I both know this is getting embarrassing...My heart goes out to ALL the victims & their families this week. I pray for change."

The message was posted in a series of three tweets (sometimes 140 characters just isn't enough when you have something like THAT on your mind) and collectively, the messages have already been retweeted over 30,000 times.

Three people were killed in the shooting this weekend (including the gunman) and five others were injured.
