It has been a rough 5 days for our country. Feeling so sad and helpless has just drained me. I can't imagine what those families in Newtown are going through. Wanting to help but not knowing how, I ran across these websites for adding my name to the call for sensible gun control and more help for addressing mental health issues.
The third component, as I see it, is requiring media responsibility in how violence is portrayed in movies, TV, video games, music and news programming. I know that censorship is an ugly word, but the constant exposure to killing is even uglier. And murdering our children is uglier yet. Something has to change.
