3. They will represent very well

They understand that it will take generations - loved the comment about seat belts and changing the culture.

4. It is a very powerful and heartwrenching interview...

I am in tears and have enormous respect and admiration for them. I hope everyone see this interview, it is a must-see, imo.

5. Out of this world

Very sad but they are so articulate and clearly understand what is needed.
We can add the video as it becomes available - gosh this is sad

7. Amazing people.

I couldn't get through watching that without crying. My kids are only 1 and 2 years older the Ben Wheeler. I know Newtown fairly well, have lived in CT all 37 years of my life. It just hits so close to home.
This is bigger then politics or parties. They are right, dealing with this issue of violence by guns is necessary for all children in the United States.

9. Everyone who says anything about guns should have to hear this.

Both sides. These people are so loving, so moving and unbelievably brave as they keep their son close and try to make something come of the horror of his death that I cannot imagine not giving them a major voice.

I am in awe of their grace.

13. Here is the link to the site Sandy Hook Promise Rachel and the Wheelers talked about...

I got the link from Rachel's website:

Sandy Hook Promise

http://www.sandyhookpromise.org/

Make sure and click on the Mission link on the site, it is very powerful in it's promise, it's simplicity.
