If you've been sad this week, know that we all have, you're not the only one.
And if you're mad, know that you're not the only one who is rip roaring mad either.
If you feel that you want to channel these feelings, there's a new group forming, having its first meeting tomorrow night, Friday, June 17 - It's called Gays Against Guns aka GAG. It's for ALL people regardless if you're gay or not but the group's organizers like the GAG acronym. It's at the Center at 208 West 13th Street. You might be able to click here for the FB page but if that doesn't work (because sometimes I've found that linking these things doesn't work for some reason), simply search "Gays Against Guns Meetup"
But the real action that you must take now is to get involved with the community.
Look, I've been an activist in one way or another since 1986 and there are a lot of us that have been pulling our weight. Some more than others, that's OK, we all do what we can in the way that we can, when we can. And if you haven't been able to do anything, that's OK, maybe you were in Corporate America but now you're retired. Or maybe you're in your 20s and all you've known is the awesome stuff that's been done for you. Again, that's just a matter of chronology.... but now it's your turn.
In either event, if you haven't been doing your share, the community can't carry you anymore.
You have to pull your weight. It's time for you wake up and ACT up. There is work to be done and it's your turn so get on it. Or, as they say back on the west coast, get your shit together, girl (or "gurl" if you live in midtown).
I'm happy to give you some ideas for direction if you want to private message me on Facebook. But you'd better hurry. See there's a countdown clock at the top of this blog and after that, Will Clark goes poof in a cloud of smoke. My "good" twin will still be lurking around the world but I think he has some other things to do post August 4th and I won't be available any more. So it's now or never. Seriously.
Peace and have a great weekend.
