Senate cowardice


TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

We live in a world of contrasts. On Monday, April 15, the world witnessed the courage of the people in Boston - victims, runners, responders, spectators. And that courage filled our hearts in the face of such tragedy.

On Wednesday, April 17, the world witnessed the cowardice of the U.S. Senate. That cowardice makes us hang our heads in shame. The NRA has a powerful voice only because the majority remains silent. Make your voice heard - through emails, phone calls, letters, contributions and your vote.
