A note to pundits and others…
Stop it. Just stop. The victims were HUMAN BEINGS. The shooter was a HUMAN BEING. The survivors, the parents who’ve now survived a child, the high school students who lost their big brother or big sister, and so many others–they’re all HUMAN BEINGS. Grief is one of the things that makes us all alike, and indeed, that makes us all human. Events like this have the potential to force us to put aside our differences and come together, to lean on one another in our sorrow.
There is a time to examine policies, et cetera, that might be changed in order to try to prevent something like this from happening. I really don’t think that time has arrived yet. Have you no shame?
