An Open Letter To Mothers Across the Country

In light of the recent event at Virginia Tech, a friend of mine asked if I could post this letter here...


I am a 32-year-old mother of three beautiful daughters. I am deeply saddened by the loss our nation has had with the deaths at Virginia Tech. I have no desire to just sit and watch the multiple faces of sorrow cross my screen. I have an obligation to protect my children and the children in our country. I feel that we have no control at all with the type of guns that are in our communities. I know that we have had a Million Mom March on our nation's capital. However, it was not as effective as it should have been.

The politicians need to hear our voice. I would love to do an American Mom March. All the mothers in the country at the same time would march at their state capital and let our government know that the continuous loss of life is assisted by the tools that they troubled individuals legally access cause such terror. I feel that the NRA and their members have more legal protection than our own children and families. I wish to rise up with other mothers to put life first before ammunition.

Mom, daughter, sister, aunt, and sister
