I know I’m not alone as I sit here feeling lost, confused and saddened about what has happened to our country, the country we live in and are raising our babies in. In my opinion, The United States of America is no longer a safe place for anyone. Every day 100 Americans are shot. You could be taking your kids to a movie and get shot. You could be going to church with your family and get shot. You could be enjoying yourself with friends during a night out and get shot. Or you could be shopping for school supplies with your eager soon to be preschooler and get shot. This one hits closest to home because this is ME. It’s me and my baby girl going to get school supplies. It’s all of us and any of us. And we can’t let another mass shooting happen and not demand action be taken for our country and our future. For our children. And for us. Tragic gun violence has already happened to my town once and it can’t happen again.
I always feel these sentiments when the topic of gun control gets brought up, especially after a mass shooting- I feel enraged and motivated to do something and then I feel overwhelmed, lost and not sure of what tangible steps I can take to MAKE AN IMPACT. So I’ve done some research and I wanted to share it with you today. I URGE YOU TO DO SOMETHING FROM THIS LIST. It takes ALL OF US to create change. Every voice matters. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
