Although we don't focus on tough topics, we don't shy away from them either.
October's topic was "gun".
Some of us had trouble figuring out a way to portray this subject but, there are many possible interpretations of any given topic, and as usual, the Girls came through.
A last minute conversation with my young nephew in which he exuberantly shared the details of the "coolest" nerf gun he had picked up at a yard sale for $1, reminded me that I could work the lighter side of this "loaded" subject. Pun intended.
We all carry a psychological burden just from witnessing horrific acts of murder and increasing gun violence in our culture.
I don't have any answers but I remember the victims.
