In the days following the shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, I posted my reactions to this unfortunate event on Facebook. In the course of responding to comments on those posts, I decided to move that discussion from Facebook to another venue. I want to keep my Facebook presence free from controversial discussion threads so that I may continue to stay connected to friends whose worldview differs from my own and I want to have a place to conduct those potentially controversial and divisive interactions.
The first three posts to Omnis will be those original three posts from Facebook and a subsequent post that enumerates actions that we as individuals can take in response to gun violence in our society.
I invite you to join this discussion. Take the risk of sharing your thoughts and feelings. Know that your ideas are welcomed and will be received with a spirit of non-judgment.
