I just logged on to find an email missive from the White House suggesting that we all join the President for a moment of silence to honor those who lost their lives at Newtown a year ago.
How about passing meaningful gun control legislation instead of empty formalities? How about at least having universal background checks of gun purchasers? How about make sure we provide mental health help to all those who need it? I will honor those from Newtown and every where who were innocent victims of gun violence…but the White House can do so much more:
A moment for Newtown
On December 14th, one year ago tomorrow, we lost 26 fellow Americans to gun violence at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. We lost 20 of our youngest students, and six dedicated school workers.
To mark the anniversary of that senseless tragedy, President Obama will honor those lost at Sandy Hook with a moment of silence tomorrow morning at 9:30 a.m. ET. We’d like you to join.
Join the moment of silence tomorrow, and help honor the victims of Newtown, Connecticut.
