#THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS: COMFORTING TWEETS FROM POWERFUL HYPOCRITES
In response to the Pulse Nightclub shooting, our nation’s pro-gun politicians took to Twitter once again expressing their deepest sympathies. In an effort to take action, I pitched an idea to collect lawmakers post-shooting condolences from over the years and create a book of prayers. Sales from each book went straight to The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
The book raised $20,000 and even got the attention of Sarah Silverman who agreed to donate her own tweet as the foreword.
