Today, President Obama announced he will take executive action to stop gun violence, making our schools and our streets safer. I'm so proud of our Prez for taking this critical, live-saving step.
Now, let our guns be turned into tools for peace! At Middle Church, honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s message of non-violence, our congregation literally "beat a sword into a plowshare" -- by forging a gun into a farming tool during worship.
We CAN make this nation a safer place for our communities and our children. We CAN trade weapons and violence for peace-making tools. Together, we make it happen, and the President has has taken a crucial first step toward creating change.
