Sorry for the absence, but I’ve been busy. Driving carpool, cooking casseroles, writing letters, making phone calls, crying, attending meetings, losing friends, working, making friends, mending broken hearts, lobbying congress, watching sports, writing more letters, crying, joining groups, quitting groups, hugging kids, visiting colleges, working, momming, driving.
Trying my best to be a worthy ambassador for Newtown every single day.
Trying to figure out what to do next.
What we can possibly do to stop our horror from ever visiting your town. Or movie theater. Or mall. Or playground. Or college campus. Or church. Or first grade classrooms.
Where we go from here, in the shadow of such sadness, I’m not sure. But while I try to figure this new reality out, I plan to take you with me.

[I’m going to be posting a lot of content regarding reducing gun violence in our country. You can read that as “gun control.” And you can unfollow. But you cannot tell me that what is going on today is acceptable under any circumstance. You cannot tell me Pro 2A means pro-unlimited, unrestricted, unaccountable access to firepower meant to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible. Because I know first hand where that unlimited power leads to, and we need to stop this before you know as well.]
