Today, I am reposting this older post because not enough has changed.
When I originally wrote this post, I had one baby boy. Now I have two kids in school and shit is getting real. As a mom and citizen, I am getting increasingly scared, angry, and frustrated.
Let’s place human life above politics and money, research the hell out of the American gun violence phenomenon, and then implement evidence-based practices to prevent it.
Moving forward, no politician gets my vote unless she/he has a comprehensive gun violence prevention plan.
No more excuses.
The shooting in Roseburg, OR last week motivated me to write letters to my representatives encouraging them to pass sensible gun control laws.
I’m listing the Oregon reps (and their contact info) to whom I wrote, and below that I will include the basic letter that I wrote and adapted for each representative.
It’s not okay to take my writing from this site without my permission, but today, everyone has my permission for this post. Please- take my letter and use it! Write to your representatives and adapt my letter to make it say how you feel. Make your voice be heard!
I’m sick and tired and frustrated, but I am also realistic. I know there’s a good chance that all these reps will ignore my letter. That is what it is. But at least I did something.
Today, I did something.
What will you do?
