Thank you to everyone who took the time to read yesterday’s post about the Navy Yard massacre on Monday and share your thoughts. Wanted to give a quick update on some ways you can take action:

* Give to the fund announced today to aid the Navy Yard victims and families. The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region announced creation of the Navy Yard Relief Fund this afternoon. It’s the same foundation that managed the $25 million relief fund after the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the Pentagon. You can learn more about it here.

* Donate to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
