Fwd: If the gun lobby wins next week

 

FROM CAPTAIN MARK KELLY

Earlier this year, I testified in front of the Colorado State Senate about the horrible loss of life that can occur when we let dangerous people - like the man who shot Gabby - buy guns.

Shortly after the hearing, the legislature passed expanded background checks -- a commonsense piece of legislation that protects the rights of responsible Americans while keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the severely mentally ill.

But that progress is under attack by the gun lobby, which sponsored recall campaigns against two of the state senators who led the effort to pass the bill.

Election Day for those recall campaigns is one week from today, and the gun lobby just committed over $100,000 to run television ads in an effort to create a "wave of fear" that halts the progress we've seen in states like Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland, and Colorado.

We've stood up against the recall effort with an ad of our own, but we need to make sure we're doing all we can to deliver a victory next Tuesday.

Make a contribution today and we'll stop the gun lobby's effort to recall the senators who passed legislation to make our communities safer.

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
