The pandemic has caused horrific challenges
in every facet of our society,

but there is almost nothing that is as tragic as
the escalating gun violence across our country.

 

There are no simple explanations for the "why"...
and no simple solutions to curb or end these violent deaths,
but we we must "name it" before we can "claim it".

Just watch any news program, in any city in the US,
and you will hear about escalating gun violence,
and it isn't just in the cities.


 

None of us is immune to the randomness,
and some of us may be involved in calculated actions.
 

 

 

WE HOLD IN THE LIGHT
THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN IMPACTED BY GUN VIOLENCE!


Conflict resolution should not be
"settled" with gunfire.
