  •  The whole country should have had it (5+ / 0-)

    Though I live in Florida, I have friends in Portland and was worried for them for over a day.  

    And then today...

    Thanks for logging in and sharing your voice.  It's astounding how many people have experienced gun violence in their lives...a close friend lost her husband through suicide.    

    There is something about today that is just so raw...I've never been so moved and motivated to effect for change in our country.  I have a mind to do a Cindy Sheehan type of vigil at my Congressman's office until he--or his colleagues---introduce legislation to fix the problems. (Though a Republican, the NRA gives him only a C+ grade, so there would be hope.)

    Now more than ever, every American is either for or against changes in laws and policies that would ensure this never happens again.  No in-between.  I no longer have patience for those who spend more time arguing to keep their guns than focusing on new ways to help keep children safe.  

    Again, thanks for adding your voice.  It takes everyone to fix this problem.
