This week, on a day of love, someone in a Florida High School lost theirs, and took it from many others.
This makes me so sad, and I know for those of you with children, homeschooling is sounding better and better.
I am all about sending love and light to those who passed and those families for whom Valentine’s Day will never be the same. But I think we all know love alone is not enough. Our love needs to inspire action, because it’s time to change. Your voice matters. The majority of Americans support common sense gun control measures, but our representatives aren’t acting. Let’s use our love (And our anger!) to make sure 2018 is a year when we elect representatives who do what they are there to do – represent the voters.
The young man who did this was able to destroy so many lives because he had a semi automatic weapon. These should be banned and you and I know this. So pick up your phone and send a message to your state and federal officials. Let them know they need to support gun control measures, or you will work to elect someone else who does. And mean what you say. This is such a super important election year. Change starts with an image, and action.
It’s time now. Take 5 minutes and do your part. Imagine a world filled with love and use your creative genius ideas and voice to call, write, and elect. Time’s up on this too.
Once you’ve called and written, check out this list to see what else you can do: http://www.30guncontrolactionsyoucantakenow.com/take-action.
