Life in our current gun culture: watching where you park, tamping down road rage, choosing your battles carefully, even weighing the pros and cons of going into Walmart.

Life for our kids in the current gun culture: innocence gone up in smoke.

“I took this picture because initially I thought it was funny.  I was going to send it to my husband to show what our mischievous little three-year-old was up to.  However, The moment she told me what she was doing I broke down.  She was practicing for a lockdown drill at her preschool and what you should do if you are stuck in a bathroom.  At that moment all innocense of what I thought my three-year-old possessed was gone.”
