    This morning I stood before 25 first-grade children.  I was there to teach them a few things about art.  For a moment I tried to imagine someone bursting through the door with guns a'blazin' to kill us all.
   I could not.  It didn't seem possible.
   Reflecting on last Friday's tragedy, it's almost as hard to imagine what a gun-happy country we've become.  Why have we chosen spineless leaders who have helped make this long series of shootings possible?
   Make some noise.  Sign the petitions.  Call your congressman for the first time.  
    Get as angry as you should be.  The smiling children I faced today -and every kid in this country- deserve better.
