Artists Respond to Tragedy
From the biggest stars to those playing off nights in coffeehouses, musicians do have the power to effect change in this culture, by raising awareness and money for a cause. I call upon the members of the musical community to organize as quickly as possible to start the process. The power of the NRA has been unassailable to this point and this must change. If you live in the Boston area, please let your presence and interest be known.
I am confident that my own group, SLSAPS, will respond and possibly act as coordinators or, in any case, as a point of contact for either a single large effort or multiple efforts to raise money and support for gun control.
The pain is deep, but we can do something. Let's do it.
