Somehow today rushed past me faster than I anticipated, and now I’m sitting at my computer trying to think of something to write about.
I’ve gone thought my usual potential sources of material:
- LinkedIn’s daily Pulse
- Seth Godin’s daily post
- Fred Wilson’s daily post
- Harvard Business Review’s Daily Alert email
- HBR’s Daily Stat email
- my daily tweets from the Wall Street Journal
Unfortunately, nothing caught my eye that I felt like exploring a bit further.
I was tempted to write about Walmart’s decision to stop selling semi-automatic rifles; the story was in today’s Wall Street Journal and on LinkedIn’s Pulse, but I felt as if I didn’t have enough time to put my thoughts down in a way that would say what I want to say about guns (I am very much anti-guns).
But as fate would have it, one of my friends posted a link on Facebook to “One minute of fed-up celebrities talking about guns is actually worth your time“.
The video was created by Everytown. From the Everytown web site:
Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.
But something is changing. More than 3 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Together, we are fighting for the changes that we know will save lives.
Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town.
While President Obama has tried to enact stricter gun laws, he has unfortunately been met with strong opposition every step along the way.
But as the Everytown video notes, enough…
