    Re: a tweet shown in your column. i’ve always attributed the quote “All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well” to Julian of Norwich. It’s thought-provoking no matter who said/wrote it first….

    Dave W: I wondered about that too but didn’t “fact-check” for the column. I’ll ask Elisabeth.

    PS: I see on Twitter she was corrected on that same point. I’ll remove it now. Peace.

    As the hash tag #WhatWillItake implies WHEN will these Christian right wingers realize that just preaching morality is not enough? Not all follow your’s or mine brand of morality and some choose to settle their problems with a gun. Sensible gun laws mean things like background checks not taking anyone’s guns at least not those who are law abiding citizens. When will these trajedies finally affect them enough to at least support background checks? When that trajededy affects them personally? I certainly hope it doesn’t come to that but it will no doubt if we don’t do something to curb this violence sooner than later!
