But first, the CRC has to agree to debate the gun safety reforms that have been introduced. Proposal 3 has amendments filed that would ban semiautomatic assault weap...
I normally make phone calls. Today, I was in a rush and created one large email distribution list. I addressed the email to myself and BCC'd the entire CRC group. Perhaps this may be useful to others. (Also, note that this post had a typo for Emery (emergy) and Patricia (particia)).

"We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say 'It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.' Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes." Happy Birthday to a hero, a fine man, Florida's Mr Rogers. ...
Representative Maxine Waters was born in 1938 in St. Louis, Missouri, as the fifth out of 13 children. As a young woman, Waters had a strong work ethic instilled in her as she worked in a garment factory, as a telephone company operator, and as an assistant teacher with the Head Start program. She is known for — and proud of — her outspoken nature and championing of issues for the disadvantaged.
At the age of 35, Waters went to work as chief deputy to a city Councilman and entered the California State Assembly three years later. While in the California State Assembly, she worked for the divestment of state pension funds from any businesses active in South Africa. At the time, South Africa was operating under the policy of apartheid. Waters' efforts helped pass legislation within the guidelines of the divestment campaign. In 1990, Californians elected Waters to the U.S. House of Representatives. As a member of Congress, she fought for legislation promoting aid to poor and minority neighborhoods in American cities. Waters referred to International Women's Day as, “annual recognition of our progress and a reminder of our responsibility in the ongoing struggle for equality, justice, and peace.”

I love these kids. They are showing us all what it is to be a good American in the larger sense, regardless of one's stand on gun control. Roll models all! (and they are so right about gun control)
Thank God for our youth
Guns are so passe´ The tables are turning!
Don't give up . I'm with you .
Icon confusion: Love the kids, hate the NRA.
I am in back of you 200%
The world is listening.
Stand with these young “survivors “! The NRA lady says they’re coming for you! Damn!
We shouldn't be backing them - we should be shielding them. We are teh adults.
Instead of having their backs, we should've been out front. Fortunately, for the NRA, people worship money more than God. I hope that this time, things change. All of us continue speaking out.
Bullies are everywhere. Keep moving forward. You kids are awesome and have a bright future.
P.S. WE ARE ALL WATCHING OVER YOU.
❤️ Love these young people! Thank you!
I'm a Baby Boomer. I'll see you in Washington on Saturday. Supporting you 100%. Proud of you.

Being an artist is rarely seen as a ticket to prosperity and social mobility. But for Florida’s historical “Highwaymen”—a group of around two dozen black painters who made a living selling their landscape paintings out of car trunks in the Jim Crow South—art was something of a pathway to freedom. ...
