March for Our Lives L.A. – March 24, 2018
It was empowering to participate in the “March for Our Lives” last Saturday in Downtown LA. I was joined by my son Jason and my mentee Najely, who got her first experience with boots-on-the-ground social activism. Our Mayor Garcetti made a rousing speech to the crowd and we enjoyed spirited performances by QuestLove, Charlie Puth and Rita Ora. But the most touching and devastating sentiments came from the real life heroes: survivors from Majory Stoneman Douglas High School, Las Vegas, Columbine and LA children who have been personally affected by gun violence. Gun violence is a continuing national tragedy. Everyone needs to wake up and do everything we can to support gun control legislation and keep the future of our country safe! Does your Estate Plan contain contributions to important causes near and dear to your heart? Mine does!
