3. we cannot back away from gun control and we cannot back away from increasing access to mental health

treatment. These are uncomfortable issues but we cannot back away from them. My husband suffered from severe depression. He wanted to hurt himself. He got help and got better, but I believe I came very close to losing him. We have a friend who is currently suffering suffering from something I don't know exactly but she is seeing a psychiatrist, and has openly talked about hurting other people. We talked to her boyfriend/roommate today. He said the doctors are making adjustments to her medication and they are trying to get her into some sort of group that would help her focus on positive things like her singing. We have to think about the patients and the public. We have to be brave and face these issues.
