A Senate in the Gun Lobby's Grip: How to advocate in writing

Gabrielle Giffords wrote about yesterday's Senate vote on gun control. I think it is an excellent piece of persuasive/advocacy writing. She brings weight from being a gun violence victim and a politician-former-legislator. Her rendering of the attacked children and description of politics, while brief, really delivers impact. Importantly, she maintains energy and the call to action to fight on. Read it in the New York Times here.
