School Shootings, Prayers to Actions
If you want to take some action, here are some starting points.
The Church of the Good Shepherd may be the starting location for the "March for Our Lives" rally in Athens (Saturday, March 24, 10AM - 1PM), but the route needs to be worked out with the University and Athens Police Departments. Peruse the comments on this FACEBOOK link for updates.
HERE is a very thoughtful Sojourners discussion about school shootings with a call to think about the connections between thoughts, prayers, and actions in relationship to gun violence.
If you wish to boycott the NRA by supporting companies' products and tell them you are doing so, HERE is an updated spreadsheet list of NRA supporting companies. Or, conversely, to support those who have renounced their relationship with the NRA, the spreadsheet includes the names of those companies as well.
