#Parkland #NeverAgain

It is 6 a.m. in Los Angeles.  The crazy kitties woke me an hour ago.  It is still dark and quiet, except for the chorus of migrating songbirds.  And I am awake.  Woke as they say.  About guns.  About gun violence.  About the facts.  Moved by the Parkland kids who should not have to be the ones doing all the work.  I walk with them, today, March 24th, I put this banner on my balcony as we all March for Our Lives.

Carma is an American poet, photographer and author, who has published under her maiden name, Dillon, and now writes as Carma Chan to honor her Chinese stepdad. She has also published the Gramma Carmels Preschool Series of digital picture books. Born in 1958 in Los Angeles, she was raised with unconditional love by Ruth and John Chan of Utah from the age of six on and has dedicated her life to "Love, Joy, Peace & Jazzy Harmony." She shares Dr. King's dream. Besides the Saardu series, which is her way of coping with insanity and imagining "greater things than anyone ever taught me," she also writes about overcoming personal pain. For example, 10 Most Annoying Things People Say to NICU Parents (...when they're only trying to help!) "I'm not always serious," she adds, "Having a warped sense of humor is the best medicine! So my stuff is a bit whacked and layered."
