After the Sandy Hook shooting, I sent an email to Senator John Corryn asking him to resist the temptation an call to do something.
I finally received a reply.
Dear Mr. S.:Thank you for contacting me regarding the horrific events in Newtown, Connecticut. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this tragedy.My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families as well as with all the citizens of Newtown who were affected by this tragedy. On December 17, 2012, I joined my Senate colleagues in cosponsoring Senate Resolution 621 to honor the victims and heroes of the shooting.It is a tragedy for the entire nation whenever a life is taken in an act of violence. I share your concern for the safety of our children in their schools, and you may be certain that I will keep your views in mind as policy changes are considered in the coming weeks. Now, we join with the families as they grieve the tragic loss of twenty children and their teachers, and we join together as a nation to honor their memories.I appreciate having the opportunity to represent Texas in the United States Senate. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.Sincerely,JOHN CORNYNUnited States Senator
Unfortunately it is a means nothing generic form letter.
I hope to get a better reply to future emails and there will be more emails.
