"We owe our children – the most vulnerable citizens in any society – a life free from violence and fear. –Nelson Mandela
"I've heard people say that the tidal wave of anguish our country felt on 12/14 has receded. But not for us. To us, it feels as if it happened just yesterday. And in the [months] since we lost our loved ones, thousands of other Americans have died at the end of a gun. Thousands of other families across the United States are also drowning in our grief."
"Please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy." –Francine Wheeler, mother of first grader Ben murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School
