“At times, the way the NRA urges ordinary Americans to arm themselves and urges legislators to pass laws allowing them to blast away when threatened makes you wonder, again, whether these legislators and lobbyists are aware that criminals can take advantage of these same laws and make it more difficult for police to prosecute them.”
–From “Living With Guns,” by Craig Whitney (2012).

Saturday: “What About Me?” John Brady facilitates the first Vitas Healthcare-sponsored event entitled: “What About Me? Men Cry In the Dark,” a male-only morning of reflection dealing with the stereotypes associated with the belief that men should hold in their feelings because it is the manly thing to do. Boys are told not to cry and as adults this translates into holding back especially feelings of loss and pain. Men learn that the problem with holding back is that these feelings do not disappear.
