At the risk of making this blog my own personal soap box (oh, wait. that's exactly what it is) and alienating current or potential readers (no problem if you're not picking up what I'm putting down, thanks for stopping by): how could they do nothing?
America is (very ironically and not in a cool, Alanis Morisette way) being held hostage by the National Rifle Association. Massacre after massacre of innocent people (children!) and our elected officials stand by and do absolutely nothing.
There is no easy or simple answer to the public health crisis that is gun violence taking place in America right now. But to do nothing? Unconscionable.
Write letters, wave signs, talk to your friends and family, VOTE. Make a fuss. It's going to take all we've got.
