Las Vegas, we are grieving with you—the victims, those who lost loved ones, the responders, and all affected by this cold-blooded massacre.

The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots.

Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.

Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.

Like many of you, I’ve been following the news coming out of Texas with a heavy heart this week

Like many of you, I’ve been following the news coming out of Texas with a heavy heart this week. The damage and destruction left behind in the wake of Hurricane Harvey is devastating, and my thoughts are with everyone affected.

We’ve also seen some incredible acts of kindness. From the rescue workers and volunteers who have gone without sleep for days, to Texans of all ages setting out in boats and kayaks to rescue their neighbors, to elected officials on the ground working together to put community ahead of political party, the best of America has shown up in Texas.

The Houston Chronicle has been collecting ways to help — it’s easier than ever to click and donate (I just did!).

Our friends and neighbors in Texas are counting on us, and I know we won’t let them down.

I’ll be honest

I’ll be honest: Writing “What Happened” wasn’t easy. Neither is witnessing what we see in the news every day. It’s never been more important to fight back and stand up for what we believe. I hope this book inspires you to keep going.
