Some of you have already read my screed written in response to a scary incident involving my son. Recently, the article has exploded in views (more than 13k), reads and recommendations on Medium.com, thanks in part to being recommended by some Medium influencers: Absurdist and Medium Staff, among others. The article has landed on “Medium’s top stories” as of today.
It’s worth noting that the article has generated a lot of discussion, including praise and criticism of my story. Several have offered their thoughts about gun control, parenting, hopelessness, gun culture, politics, and (oddly) police brutality and deceptive imagery. If you haven’t yet read it, I encourage you to do so. Click on the image to go to the story.
