In our last episode, we looked back at some of our most impactful conversations and we talked about how we can put what we have learned into action. At the time we were recording, another school shooting had just occurred in Nashville, Tennessee, where three 9-year old children and three teachers were killed. We shared our frustration at the escalation of gun violence here in the United States, and the apparent lack of action to change it.
In this episode, we decided to call B.S. on the complacency and lack of real action on this critical issue. The solutions should be common sense, as this is really about saving lives, and yet the country is more divided than ever. We all have to be a part of the public outcry for real change, right now, and in this episode, we explore how we can do just that. We also provide some helpful information in the links below.
