Twenty plus times.
My emotions are all over the place.
There is a shooting range near my home. I hear gunshots all the time. Just now as I write this, I hear them. I've gotten used to the sound and know they will not harm me. But the thought of the power they possess hadn't weighed quite so heavily upon me until tonight. Because I see the faces of children.
Sixteen of them were 6 years old. Four of them were seven. There were six brave and selfless adults who did the best they could to protect them, saving even more families from this unspeakable cross. Listen to the reading of the names in this video. And know that Newtown, Connecticut is your town and my town.
I hope to God that we can rise to the level of expectation that our President has set for us. In his words..."For those of us who remain, let us find the strength to carry on and make our country worthy of their memory."
If you want to debate what needs to be changed in the way of gun policy, then do that, debate. But it is all wind, my friends, until you can say it as you stare into the faces of sixteen six-year-olds and four seven-year-olds who won't be home for Christmas.
