“In the past three years, more kids have been killed in school shootings in our country than American military troops have been killed in combat over the same time period.”

–Amy McGrath, Retired Marine, F/A-18 pilot, wife, mother of 3, dog-lover

McGrath tweeted the above as an introduction to this article on the website: Task & Purpose. Task & Purpose, is a military centric website. The Media Bias / Fact Check website rates Task & Purpose as: a “Least Biased” source with “High” Factual Reporting.

If you are not yet connected to a group that is advocating for legislation to protect our children from gun violence especially when they are at school, you need to do so. If you are not interested in being part of the solution, you are part of the problem. It is only a matter of time before a child you know and love is the one whose photograph and name become known by an entire nation, grieving yet another school shooting, and sending you their thoughts and prayers. We are out of time to fix this epidemic.

Please. Engage.

Here is a 2 minute video to strengthen your resolve.
