Whoo hoo! I’m an activist, you guys. I’m very excited to be a small and humble part of a grass roots group here in Los Angeles called ENOUGH.
We had our first meeting last night of concerned, passionate citizens and parents who want to help use our voices to end the out of control, frightening gun violence in America and help protect our children and THE children of America. If you want to talk about freedom, how about their freedom to live and not be shot at school? Exactly.
ENOUGH will be online, on Facebook, Twitter, etc., soon, if you’d like to be a part of it in any way, big or small, please join us. I’ll post what’s happening here as well, as we grow, join forces with other groups like Newtown United, Women Against Gun Violence and The Brady Campaign and their Million Mom March chapters to take positive action.
I personally wanted to do something more to honor the the precious pure love and light children of Newtown, Connecticut and brave, loving staff of the Sandy Hook Elementary school, and the firefighters recently killed by the same assault weapon used at both crimes (the Bushmaster). I mean, really, firefighters’ only job is to save other people.
I’m very glad this nonprofit group has been founded by my new friend Jane Edith Wilson (I was invited by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, beautiful mom of three, dynamic woman and hilarious blogger of Baby on Bored, book author and host of the very funny show Parental Discretion with Stefanie Wilder-Taylor on Nick Jr.).
(By the way, if you’re for keeping assault weapons that can shoot 100 sounds in under 10 minutes at babies, don’t bother commenting here, because I will just change your comment to GO ENOUGH! I have a friend in the FBI too, so save your death threats for someone who won’t have your information tracked and reported. Hugs.)
I’ll keep you updated. I think this vital issue may be the Civil Rights one of our time, and no one thought Lincoln would get the Emancipation Proclamation enforced back then, either.
The right and true good of the people will win out. And a child will lead us.
