I cannot begin to comprehend the pain the affected families are feeling. Reading all the reactions from the horrified citizens of our country literally has me in tears tonight. I hope those poor families come to know that they don’t grieve alone.
It is encouraging to see the stark contrast between the few sick maniacs of this world and the world-wide community at large. Our society is grieved by tragedies like these and Angry at the growing number of horrific events that should not be , especially in a supposedly enlightened age as ours.
Twitter and other social media are abuzz, and inevitably some posts and discussions have turned political. There are many angry responses to some whom posted political opinions , in response to this situation, during this time of mourning. Too soon ? I don’t know, isn’t that what politics really is. A system to allow individuals in a society to relate to one another. I find it extremely appropriate to express themselves in that way , whether I/we agree with the individual opinions , or not. Parents and the childless alike , we are all absolutely united in denouncing horrors like these , and are all empathetic to the victims and their families.
I hope we can someday come to a consensus on how to fairly relate to each other and protect each other, in this fragile existence of ours.
