I was going to post about my new book, with either an excerpt or a preorder link, but, now is not the time. The school shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, adds to a far too-long list. I, like, most people, feel grief and outrage that this continues to happen. That we allow it to happen. That despite 90 percent of Americans wanting federal lawmakers to take steps to prevent horrific gun violence, Congress refuses to do so.
What I also felt was relief. My wife used to teach fourth grade. She was teaching when the Sandy Hook massacre happened. It shocked me to my core to think that I could say goodbye to my wife in the morning and never see her again. She wasn’t a police officer, a firefighter, a member of the military. I am so thankful she is no longer a teacher.
Ten years. Ten years since Sandy Hook and this hasn’t stopped.
Our representatives are not representing us. They are violating their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. They put money and power over life and liberty.
The only power we have is the vote.
Vote like your life depends on it.
Because it does.
