(Huffington Post) — More than a dozen children went to elementary school this morning and were dead before lunch.

White House spokesman Jay Carney says “today is not the day” to talk about gun control.

I disagree. That’s all we should talk about today.

We are heartbroken, yes. But saying that will fix nothing. It won’t bring anyone back, and it won’t keep this from happening again. And of course we know the parents of Newtown could have been any one of us. That’s important to remember, but it isn’t enough, because the knowing doesn’t change the fact that we could still be next.
