IN TWEET: A POWERFUL AND MOVING TRIBUTE TO THE NEWTOWN FAMILIES AND THEIR TIRELESS EFFORTS TO ENSURE THEIR LOVED ONES DID NOT DIE IN VAIN.
This will be short because words cannot convey the loss and suffering of the families and friends of those killed at Sandy Hook Elementary on that sunny December morning.
This segment of THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW moved me to tears. Grief is a powerful emotion. While it can cripple a person and leave them hollow, the Newtown Families have come together and somehow found a way to turn sorrow into action. They are true heroes; people who will stop at nothing to make sure their love ones did not die in vain. NOTE: MOBILE BROWSERS MAY NOT SUPPORT THIS VIDEO PLUG-IN. VIEW ON DESKTOP OR LAPTOP.
The very least you, me and anyone who will listen can do is pick up the phone. Call your Senators and Representatives in Washington D.C. and keep the pressure on until there has been a vote and meaningful gun safety reform has become the law of the land. Opponents are counting on us forget and move on. The lives of these 26 innocent victims and the lives of those lost every day to gun violence should be more than enough to make sure that never happens.
