I know it's been radio silence from here for awhile. Just busy, nothing terrible.
I've not been big on political statements here, but I do not know how to do anything else today other than repeat this, over and over and over again:
if you are tired of the utter and deplorable lack of meaningful conversation about gun control in this country then today, do something about it.
Write to your representatives. Call your senator. Sign the White House petition. DO SOMETHING DO SOMETHING DO SOMETHING.
Do more than express sympathy on your face.book page: do something with it. (See above.)
I don't give a shit if you agree with me, personally, on gun control or not: I have no particular law in mind. But if we look those families in the face (even over the news) and we do nothing? Nothing at all just because we are afraid of being "too political" or pissing somebody off or stirring up controversy? Then shame on us.
Hug your kids: yes. Cry: yes. Pray: yes. And then do something.
