The Long Shadow of Gun Violence

So often our nation’s youth reach for their dreams, only to have those dreams ended by gunviolence. The death of Christina Green, a nine-year old girl, casts a long shadow over our nation and underscores a culture of violence. 

We stand with everyone holding in the Light the victims who lost their lives, those who remain wounded, and their families who will suffer so greatly as a result of the shooting in Tucson.
