Friends, I am overwhelmed by your response to my long tweet regarding our gun laws. Thank you for sharing it and thank you for your kind words. Sometimes when I despair for this world, I am reminded of the true heart of most people and I am rejuvenated. I am hopeful that this may result in a real national dialogue that forces us to make real change. Please keep it going. Keep talking. Call your representatives and insist on debate and bills.
And for the many gun owners and gun advocates that have responded with intelligence, concern and respectfulness - I so appreciate your input, your knowledge and your decorum. I am not anti-gun. And I am not unaware of how often guns can prevent violence. I merely believe we need to have a rational discussion about the pros and cons of where we draw the line on civilian ownership of the range of weapons and instruments of violence that exist. And on gun laws in general. IF there is a real discussion - among experts and lawmakers - unfettered by money interests, then I think acceptable conclusions will be attained. But please don't believe what the few are shouting over the twitter-verse that I am anti-gun. I am for sense, and I fear it is often a victim, as well.
Again, to you all - your support and kindness moves me to my core. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to me. My prayer today is for a world where all of us feel secure, feel hopeful and feel cherished and appreciated by those we love. Good Sunday to ya.
