Dear Mr. VP,

Today my kid turned 5.

He is kind, funny, and smart. He’s in a strange place between being independent and still being a baby.

5 seems significant to me. Maybe because it means kindergarten. I’ve mentioned this before, but I was pregnant when Adam Lanza massacred a kindergarten class at Sandy Hook. Maybe 5 seems significant because I somehow feel like I can no longer keep him safe. I can’t single handedly pass common sense gun laws that could keep Sandy Hook from happening again. You could do something about it, but you’d rather take money from the NRA. Apparently that means more to you than the lives of kindergarteners.
