|My mom, Dawn Hochsprung, was the principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School. She was murdered almost a year ago today, and there’s nothing anyone can do to bring her back.As painful as this anniversary is, I’m also grateful to have joined this movement of millions of Americans like you who are standing up for common-sense gun laws. And I want to take a moment to thank you for your commitment to passing stronger gun laws so others don’t have to experience what my family has been through.Today, I’m changing my profile picture to the image below. It’s a show of solidarity with supporters around the country, and it will remind our friends and families that we’re serious about making meaningful changes to our nation’s broken gun laws.Please join me, and stand with supporters around the country by updating your profile picture on Facebook and Twitter:

It’s because of people like you that we’ve seen so much progress on this issue in the last year. But this fight isn’t over, and changing your Facebook photo is a simple way to show your friends and family that you’re in it for the long haul.
Change your profile photo – for the 26 children and educators, including my mom, who were killed one year ago, and for the 33 Americans who are murdered with guns every single day:
And if you ever feel disheartened by the politics in Washington around this issue, think of my mom and all the people we’re doing this for. We can’t give up before we pass the common-sense laws that will make us all safer.
