Guns & Anger

We don't get a lot of snow so this little bit was welcome.  Our son took this photo in downtown Portland over the week-end.

This morning President Obama announced some executive actions he is taking to hopefully reduce gun violence in this country given Congress lack of action.  I support any effort to try to bring common sense to this issue.  I hope his efforts help.

I'm appalled by how vile this issue became once politics arrived on the scene.

I also know there's only one thing that will make a significant difference, personal responsibility.  To see real progress each person much stop and think before they speak words of anger  or enter such language on social media.  A person hanging onto the edge of the world by their fingernails may hear or read that angry language and be prompted to commit unspeakable acts.

We must encourage personal responsibility.

  1. Yes, absolutely! I am proud of our president and support him in this cause, but the real fix must come in the civility of our society.
