I remember being 13, going away for a special holiday with my best friend to her aunt and uncle’s place in California (Disneyland teen trip, oh my!) and as we were poking around the house one morning, I walked past a small revolver looking gun on the uncle's nightstand. I stopped still in my tracks, I had never seen one before. They told me it was for safety, but I had felt safe up until then. Now I spent the evenings scared that I would accidentally wake up and they'd think I was a robber... It shows how even the sight of an unnecessary weapon can harm a child's thought process. I can only imagine what it's like for children who experience more than simply a walk-by sighting. We need to foster the young ones to feel safe, by being loved and loving others — fear is our biggest enemy. This is what our country needs now more than ever, to eradicate the fear in order to protect its people.

It is so important, today more then ever, that we are loving ourselves and our fellow man, accepting our uniqueness and our differences, which make this world such a beautiful place. Love is naturally within is. It is hate that is learned around us.

As a parent I shouldn't have to feel worried about the safety of my children at school, at the theater, or at a grocery store. The time for change is long overdue and it takes action over words.
