Not excusing, but looking deeper into the root causes of why mass killings like what happened in CT happen, and what we can really do about it.
Children and more died in this recent massacre. It's terrible. It's equally terrible that the same number of children and adults will die today, right now, in other countries around the world for reasons just as unfathomable and meaningless.
As an isolated incident, any death of a close friend or family member, or any innocent, is a sad thing. A tradegy, and no matter who died or how they died, we search for meaning. We search for the who, what, and the why. Anyone who has ever lost someone close, in circumstances "unnatural," can attest to this.
Why then, due to a few more instances of terrible tradegy, do we, as a people, insist on taking away the rights of hundreds of millions of people and further empowering the possibility of tyranny? Why do we do this?
