Last year, on "Wear Orange to Prevent Gun Violence" day I participated in an anti-violence march with the awesome students from one of my local schools, Schmid Elementary school. While I vividly remember the laughter and smiles of that day, what stuck with me most were the pleas from the children and assembled adults for people to "put the guns down, we deserve to live." Today, I went to the funeral of one of those beautiful children, Nakiya Holmes. My heart is heavy as I pray for the Holmes-Williams family and our entire community, because no one should have to bury a child, particularly at the hands of SENSELESS gun violence. I don't wish the pain I saw on the faces of the family and those who gathered to celebrate Nakiya's life on anyone; because that is a pain no one should ever have to experience. I support the rights of law abiding gun owners, but I also want those who believe in gun owner rights to support policies that will help keep guns out of the hands of those who should not have them. As State Representative and before I have and will continue to commit myself to strengthening communities by providing opportunities to ensure ALL people have the same chance to share in the American dream. But I also know that legislation alone will not solve this problem, it will take all of us, families, community leaders, clergy, elected and appointed government officials, business leaders and law enforcement working together to make stronger communities. #thismuststop #togetherwecanmakeadifference
