    mass murders like Sandy Hook. Like the woman in this diary, this had personal connections for me. I have generally followed the issue of mass murders for decades. Everyone needs a hobby, I suppose. I've read about all of them.

    But the issue has since branched out to a question of gun violence in general, very clearly, as per most Progressives' positions. Good. I would then like to discuss gun violence as it actually is and also, as it has been, dating right back to Malcolm X's reasons for advocating arming African-Americans to the current tragedy amongst poor and non-white, inner-city youth.

    We need to take a stand.

    I have always been deeply committed to absolute civil rights and equality for all. I believe every person is equally important, and this includes all those who go unnoticed and unnamed in the media. Thus I would like to draw far, far more attention to gun violence in America myself. We've been silent on this matter for too long.
