|Dear First U Community,
It seems almost trite at this point to say that our hearts are broken yet again, this time at the news of 21 murdered people (19 of whom were children) in Uvalde, TX. Of course our hearts are broken and our minds blown, and yet it’s not entirely shocking. In a word, it’s surreal that something can be unsurprising and remain utterly horrific.
Wringing our hands does no good. Even becoming publicly profane (as some politicians now are) changes little.
If ever there was a time to ACT, it’s now.
- President Biden’s bottom line message was…”It’s time to turn this pain into action.”
- V.P. Kamala Harris said, “Enough is enough. Enough is enough. As a nation, we have to have the courage to take action.”
- Sen. Chris Murphy’s message is worth 7 minutes of your time as he repeatedly asks the empassioned question, “What are we doing?” watch here
