This was a great thing. I truly enjoyed all of the spirited comments that were given. Lively debate is necessary in this situation. We had a moment of silence as we listened to the children laugh and play. The organizer, Cicely Bingener, encouraged us to think of the victims of this tragedy as we listened to the children play and remember that the voices of the victims in CO were now silenced. I've heard one word echoing for far too long.... "ENOUGH." When will that be....?
