Policy & Change
Maybe dedicating a full blog post to nearly every tragedy we face isn't the way to keep my positive demeanor, but nothing feels right otherwise. So here we are again.

I'm just so tired. I'm tired of writing these posts. I'm tired of defending basic human rights & policy changes to strangers on social media. I'm tired of grieving for lives lost due to senseless, avoidable violence. 

This country loves our guns more than it loves our people, and we should be ashamed of ourselves. 

It's not a God-given right to own a firearm. Don't use my God to defend twisting the second amendment for your own gain. I'm tired. 

There's so many of us fighting, so many voices struggling to be heard, and yet it feels like we're so alone in the fight sometimes. How did it get that way? It's not okay. Nothing is ever going to change until something changes. 

But how will anything ever change when the white house is full of people who think that thoughts & prayers are enough? Don't get me wrong, we should never stop praying. But faith without action is dead, & so we keep losing lives. We keep making status updates expressing heartbreak & outrage. We keep fighting with strangers on the internet. We keep, we keep, we keep. 


Here are some ways you can take action for gun policy change right now: 

+ Find out who your Congress representative is & call or email them, letting them know why change is important. 
+ Donate to Everytown 
+ Find events in your area dedicated to stopping gun violence 
+ Get educated. Do your research. Keep fighting. 

"What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."
-James 2:14-17
