Momentum building to stop gun violence 

Published: 5/11/2023 5:13:44 PM

Julia Ward Howe’s original Mother’s Day Proclamation was a call to action. In this time of such excessive gun violence the relevance is glaring. Many have been devoting their lives to this for years. I admittedly have not. This is not anti-gun, not anti-Second Amendment. This is about finding actions and legislation to protect our communities, our children and our grandchildren.

The momentum is building. We are all needed. Massachusetts is having those important conversations. Let’s find ways to join in. In honor of Mother’s Day and the fight against gun violence, we will be standing in vigil on Colrain Common Saturday May 13 from 10 to 11 a.m. We welcome you to join us or create your own vigil.

On May 24, the one year anniversary of the Uvaldi school shooting ,we will stand in Northampton at the City Hall from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. We have 21 pictures of the children and their teachers. Please join us if you are interested. Consider involvement with these local and very active organizations: Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.
