I am not entitled to any of those families' grief. And yet, I grieve. I grieve for them, I grieve for our nation, I grieve for every child who learned that day that they are not safe in their schools.
I am heartened by the response of our president and many of our politicians to this tragedy I am hopeful that we will, finally, as a nation, take a good hard look at our guns laws and begin to question the sanity of allowing regular people to own military-style automatic weapons. I am hopeful that this is the beginning of the end of these types of massacres. I pray that my son will live out his long life without ever once having to worry about being shot in a mall, in a movie theater, in his classroom. I will fight, I will vote, I will donate, I will scream to anyone who will listen to help make it so.
