Time for Action

by heatherwhaley

When I was in fourth grade at Increase Miller, newly transplanted to Katonah, I remember very distinctly sitting in Miss Yohan’s class when there was a loud wail over the P.A.  It wasn’t a fire drill and I had no idea what was going on.  We all had to go in the hall and put our heads between our knees, and someone told me it was in case of an air raid.  I remember thinking it was absurd.  Who was going to fly over Increase Miller and drop a bomb on me?  Nevertheless there were many nights I stared at my ceiling worried about the Soviet Union.  Our kids today have it so much worse.  Their worst fears have been realized.  They are afraid to sleep in their own beds.  We need to do something about it.  And we CAN do something about it.

On Monday, January 14th at 7:30 PM at the Redding Community Center Saul Cornell, author of A Well-Regulated Militia: the Founding Fathers and the Origins of Gun Control in America will moderate; you can learn more about him by clicking HERE.  We can turn the tragedy of the massacre in Newtown into a catalyst for positive change.  This will be a very informative event.  If you live nearby please join us, or tell your local friends!  It’s time.
