As a nation, we have it in our power to protect our children from gun injuries, as other countries have done. Doctors, teachers, city and state officials, gun owners, families and young people must come together with a creative and meaningful commitment to improving our society.
Pediatricians, parents, teachers and all who care for children need to continue to look for ways to comfort, support, nurture and protect them. Please contact your legislators to show support for legislative changes recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics that will keep our children safer. Please look to all the helpers and try to help.
