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.
