Seat By Seat, We Shall Prevail

TNmtngrl

Hey folks, I’ve been lurking since Friday when we got to our daughter’s. As you know, I can’t comment on my iPad. Finally got my computer open. Have been wanting to share this since Sunday.

As some of you know, since right after the election we have formed a group of (mostly) women in the Knoxville area. We call ourselves the Knox Blue Dots. (Blue dot in a red area) For the past four Sundays, a group has been meeting at a local restaurant to write post cards. We’ve written for Connor Lamb and for a woman who is running in a special election in TN14. We’ve always had around 15 people. This past week, we combined with Moms for Gun Sense to write to our state legislatures about gun safety/reform. Letters will be delivered by some in Mom’s Sense in a couple of weeks. There was lots of advertising getting the word out. 95 people showed up!!! Yes, 95 people!!!!!!!!!!! 139 letters written. Lots of new folks joining Knox Blue Dots and or Mom’s Gun Sense. WOW!

That, on top of these kids in FL leading the way and doing what PO said over and over and over: Be the Change. Even with the heartbreak of the FL shooting, I have more HOPE than I’ve had in a long time. That and, of course, Mueller coming through.
