I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve. Isoroku Yamaoto
Donald Trump's "thumbs up tour" in Florida and his recent tweets may have awakened a sleeping giant. His actions may have awakened the sleeping giant filling that giant with a passionate resolve, a resolve to effectuate change to preserve and save the lives of our children. Take the following for example:
It is time for Americans to take the country back. It is time for Americans to stop the madness associated with the politicization of issues surrounding guns. It is time to repudiate the NRA's stance on the right to own "weapons of war" (there is no such right). It is time to hold our elected representatives responsible for the continued failure to fund comprehensive research into gun violence, reasonably regulate gun ownership and to ban weapons such as the AR-15.
Our failure to act as a people means this is the image of our nation that we will live with well into the future. Only the people can effectuate change and it is time for a change.
