Mary Bumpurs and Veronica Perry extended a national call for unity and change, maintaining a deep sense of hope and optimism that their actions would one day result in police reform.
Over the weekend I made a quick trip to Denver. On two separate shared rides, sitting up front for 45 minutes, I had the chance to talk politics with people quite different from me. It reminded me of the value of face-to-face conversation, not making assumptions, and listening without trying to convince.
If you're a proud Republican who really wants what's best for America, it's time to throw off the shackles of party politics.
I am one of those independents that Donald Trump (and Hillary Clinton) is trying to win over with his rhetoric, ideas, and platform; after all, I have...
As much as Cleveland might like to set more reasonable limits on where people can openly carry guns, the city is handcuffed. In 2006, the gun lobby's allies in the Ohio general assembly overrode a Republican governor's veto and made "preemption" the law.

I feel as if I have a responsibility as an artist to bring awareness to harm caused by guns.
There I sat in a non-descript ballroom in downtown Denver on a sweltering June day, listening to Hillary Clinton speak about the staggering inequalities women in the U.S. still face, while two blocks away, a man walked into the Colorado Recycling Association offices, shot his ex-wife multiple times and then fatally shot himself.
Let us come together with the maturity to listen to others experiences and the humbleness to do whatever necessary to create a world where all are valued, protected and given opportunity to live the American Dream.
As the attacks between Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump intensify, the recent shootings in Baton Rouge, Dallas and Orlando have put the spotlight on t...
Let's forget that violent crime continues to decline. Let's forget that the number of times that guns are used to prevent crimes is too small to be found.
I finally had to take a stand and personally ask all my friends on Facebook to stop putting anything on my timeline from a website that is involved with propaganda for either side of any political, religious or racist movement!
There are 90 Americans who are shot and killed every day in America, and, outside of their families and friends, we as a nation rarely grieve for them.
