Gabrielle Giffords and Roxanna Green promise not to give up in an essay published in the Newtown Bee today. Giffords is the former Arizona congresswoman wounded in a 2011 gun attack in Tucson. Roxana Green’s daughter Christina died in the shooting that killed 6 and wounded 13 people.
… We do not choose the grief we feel – but what we do choose is what our grief is to us – what it motivates us to do. Today, we choose and pledge that we will take our grief, and on behalf of our loved ones and those lost in Newtown, in Santa Monica, in Aurora, and so many places that don’t make headlines, we will not stop fighting until our government has come to its senses.
