    We watched part of Rachel tonight and her interview with Ben's parents, a six year old who was killed in Newtown. Our 14 year old said she couldn't "watch this and try to process the grief, it's too big and I'm just a kid and it weighs on my shoulders. But I can start threads on Facebook and talk at school about action, that I can do" - I think there are a lot of people who feel that way. Things like what you are doing here make me feel less helpless so thanks.

    I'm pretty tired of being told what I care about.

      Such remarkable, thoughtful parents.

      And give that 14 year old of yours an extra hug.  She sounds remarkable, too.

        they have figured out that communicating is the key to change - and they have the tools. It's pretty awesome, and I appreciate her feeling the need to "do" - Rachel said best: don't just walk away from the tv thinking how awful this all is - take action.

        I'm pretty tired of being told what I care about.
