the answer is that we must heal
But the "why" of these killings confounds us
We don't need CNN talking heads
to tell us that he was a disturbed individual
or interviews from school-mates to gain insight
But we need to know why
killings take place,
not just by "disturbed" people
What about Russia?
What about Germany?
What about Rwanda?
What about U.S.?
What about Wounded Knee?
What about Kent State?
I am writing this post for the Week 56 Writing Challenge, where we are required to write 33-333 words using the word "heal" in the context of restoring purity or integrity.
I don't usually like to justfiy or explain my posts, but in this case, I feel the need to make two points. We should do everything we can to deal with crazy people and gun control is one of the things which can help. But my second point is that I don't understand why we are more focused on random acts of violence, when governments have committed acts of violence and we rarely speak up in horror, the way we did this past weekend.
