In the past few years, as gun violence escalates in our country, I've heard so many people lament about how there is nothing one person can do to improve the situation. I've been that person. But the truth is, doing nothing is the most powerless choice. Staying quiet doesn't serve anyone. We must believe that our voices have power, and we must not give up. As a parent, I have no choice but to put my voice out there, and pray that if we stay the course, she will grow up in a safer, more loving world.
