I can't today. Sorry.
I've been alternating between unbearable grief and unbearable rage -- not just for the precious children who lost their lives yesterday, kids so similar to my own. But also for all the other children in that school who'll have to carry that trauma for the rest of their lives. Like me, right now, despite being 41 fucking years old.
All I ask is that you please sign the petition asking President Obama to help start a national conversation about gun control. The status quo is untenable.
