This week at Old South Haven Churdh




This Week at OSH         --         November 7, 2019

Members and Friends -

Last Sunday thirty people came together to view the film,TRIGGER: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence, here at OSH. It was a moving and stark reminder that long after the attention of the media moves on families, friends and communities continue to live with the devastation those few minutes of horror unleashed on their lives. We, as one said, do not need more 'heroes.' those left in the aftermath who become advocates. We need everyday people fortunate enough not to be part of the tragedy of gun violence to speak up and say there has to be a better, more responsible way to bring an end to gun violence in our lives. What comes next is action be it as simple as letter writing or as direct as participating in vigils and demonstrations. We need to light candles and pray for victims. But, wouldn't it be better to work for a time when those vigils were no longer needed.

Want to know more. . .Do more?
If you missed seeing the film we have a copy, just ask.
If you would like to be part of a group coming together for action, see Jason.
If you want to be better informed about gun violence, one good web-site is https://www.thetrace.org. It is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit newsroom dedicated to shining a light on America's gun crisis

Save the Date: Gun Violence Vigil, Monday, December 16th at Setauket Presbyterian Church
