    Ask Our Officials: "What are YOU going to do about it?"



    Donate Now My heart continues to ache for the victims, their families, and the Virginia Tech community. After my husband was shot by a deranged man, our lives were never the same. But at some point, Jim and I decided to stop hurting and take action.

    Eight years ago today was the horrific tragedy at Columbine High School. And in that eight years, no significant action has been taken in our country to prevent gun violence.

    Elected officials continue to ignore our gun violence problem. It’s time for them to answer one question: "What are YOU going to do about it?"

    We’re waging a campaign to ask our nation's leaders . . . the President, the Congress, the presidential candidates, state officials and local governments . . . asking them, "What are YOU going to do about it?"

    32 people were murdered on Monday at Virginia Tech
    32 people are murdered every day by gun violence in America

    As a nation we must do better

    A clever donor has started her own email campaign asking her contacts to contribute $32 or more today to help sustain our campaign to ask our nation’s leaders, "What are YOU going to do about it?"

    What a great idea. Will you join her by making a gift today and asking your contacts to join you?

    Right now, we are focusing on the Presidential candidates all of whom have been disturbingly silent on the issue.

    Call those who want to be President, and ask them "What are YOU going to do about it? What we're doing now is not working. Doing nothing is not an option. Please take action now."

    Your support is the life of our campaign. This is an unbudgeted project that can only be sustained with your generous support today.

    We can no longer wait and we must take action . . . too many lives are being lost. So today, I respectfully ask, "What are YOU going to do about it?"

    Warm regards and growing optimism,

    I remember, years ago, when I was working the really early shift, there was nothing on the radio. Well, nothing except farm reports and these two guys who were predicting the end of the world "any day now" based on biblical prophicies vs. the current news.

    It was gonna happen soon!

    REAL SOON!!!

    Every morning there were more signs the end was near. One day, they were so sure it was imminent, they asked people to send their cash donations via FedEx overnight delivery so it would reach them "in time".

    I'm sure some people actually did what they asked, just as some people will send Sarah their $32., without thinking things thru.....! :screwy:

    I'll leave her a donation.

    It will be in the form of a small flaming bag on her doorstep and I'll just ring the doorbell and leave her to collect it.

    I'd do the same Foul, but she isn't worth the paper bag and bic lighter.
