What, I wonder, is it about gay people that you find so disgusting? Could it be that we demonstrate more strength and courage in living our lives than you could ever imagine when you are anonymously sending your hate mail?
Surely, not every politician has to be a witness, or a victim, of a horrendous shooting to find the courage to vote against the National Rifle Association.
My mother turns 100 that year and 2020 also marks a century of women having the right to vote in the United States. How appropriate that a woman should be president at that milestone. You best plan a really big victory party in 2020, Mrs. Clinton, because there will be a whole lot of centenarian women, who have their marbles, who will be making their way to D.C. to celebrate.
It takes unimaginable strength, resolve and courage, to use your experience from that December night outside of the Dakota in New York City, more than three decades ago, to push for changes to our gun laws in the United States. May these changes come to pass, and may your part in realizing a country with less gun violence be part of your legacy.
