Leaning towards love

Dismayed as all of you are over the latest school shooting. Failings everywhere. In education, in nurturing, but most of all, our failure as a country to do anything about the NRA who has the Republican Party in a choke hold. With so many senators being paid millions of dollars by the NRA how will we ever make meaningful changes to the Second Amendment?  No-one needs an assault rifle. 

And — stay with me here — isn't it time to really look at the way we function as a society? Isn't it time to make a change from being fear-based to becoming love-based. Imagine the difference if all children were taught to nurture and care for life. How can killing be the option in an ethically advanced, thoughtful society? We must embrace love. We must choose it. Every single time. 

I don't feel that I am a dreamer when I say we have to continue to strive towards love, to do everything we can to make love and kindness the most important thing, to find solutions for disenfranchised people that doesn't involve destroying other lives. 

If there is one thing our president can do to change the way he will be perceived by generations to come (it won't be pretty), it is to make meaningful changes to the Second Amendment.  I am not holding my breath. But I hope that his ego and his desire to be loved, will lead him to this path.
