Before anything may be accomplished we must...



When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving advice,

you have not done what I asked.

When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn't feel that way,

you are trampling on my feelings.

When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problems,

you have failed me, strange as that may seem.

Listen! All I asked, was that you listen,

not talk or do- just hear me. Advice is cheap: 10 cents

will get you both Dear Abby and Billy Graham in the same newspaper.

And I can do for myself; I'm not helpless.

When you do something for me that I can and need to do for myself,

you contribute to my fear and weakness.

But when you accept as a simple fact that I do feel what I feel, no matter how irrational,

then I quit trying to convince you and can get about the business of understanding what's

behind this irrational feeling.

And when that's clear, the answers are obvious. And I don't need advice.

Irrational feelings make sense when we understand what's behind them.

Perhaps that's why prayer works, sometimes, for some people,

because God is mute, and he doesn't give advice or try to fix things.

They just listen and let you work it out for yourself.

So, please listen and just hear me, and, if you want to talk,

wait a minute for your turn, and I'll listen to you.

Dear Kristin - 

One year ago, I was proud to walk onto the House floor for the State of the Union Address. 

The next day, after casting my last vote, I resigned my seat in Congress. 

Mark and I will be there again tomorrow night, because this is a critical moment in time for legislation to reduce gun violence in the United States. 

That's also why we're releasing our first television ad on the issue. As one of the first donors to Americans for Responsible Solutions, I wanted you to see it first. 

Watch the ad and forward it to your friends: 



Nine out of ten Americans support universal background checks for gun purchases. 

Congress must act. Let's get this done.
