Leadership is never about doing what is popular or easy.
In the midst of the tragedy that took place in Newtown, CT yesterday, I’m confident a leader will step forward and champion the causes that need to be championed. Serious discussion and legislation needs to move forward regarding guns and mental health in the United States of America. With freedom comes responsibility.
Things that sadden me about the deaths yesterday include the fact that there are 20 children who will never grow up to graduate, marry or have children of their own. The fact that countless lives are changed forever and I can only imagine the heartache that will come in the future families from children who were unwillingly forced to be a part of the events.
At some point we have to agree that enough is enough. And at some point we have to take action instead of just continue to talk.
