I hear my five-year old grandson laughing and think of the twenty first-graders killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. How safe will his school be next year? The National Rife Association suggestion of an armed guard in the hallway of each school doesn’t reassure me but persuades me all the more to do what I can to change our gun culture so that my grandchildren will live in a peaceful, healthy, and loving world.
No small undertaking. But if we all stay conscious of the issues and support gun control, we can make a difference. Just today I joined and contributed to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
It’s one small step.
There is more to do.
