Thank you, Brian Mast
There are people in public life who diminish themselves and our country by constantly accusing reputable news organizations of making up news. Today - in the light - or shadow - of the most recent school massacre - one of those venerable news sources, the New York Times, published a most important Op-Ed.
The author is Brian Mast. He is a Congressman representing Florida’s 18th District. I thank him for his service – he gave his legs walking the walk as a member of the US Army. I thank him for his words and read carefully as he talks the talk. While our perspetives may be different he appears to be someone willing to converse and even compromise. He has learned in the hardest of ways that weapons of war in the hands of civilians do not make a country or a neighborhood safer. Most important we agree – when all is said and done - the goal must be simply to keep our children safe. With that in heart and mind let the conversation continue.
Here is a link to that Representative Mast’s article.
