These events always cause us to stop and take stock, which is not a bad thing. But we tend to look at societal flaws as the answer. Have we been desensitised to voilence? Are gun control issues at the heart of the matter? Should video games, comic books, and rap music take the balme? And what about the breakdown of the family - is there culpablity there? All good questions, and all things worth examining. But we have to be careful about saying this is a systemic problem. One person did this and we need to consider the source of the stress, the anger, the desperation and the illness that brought about this dramatic action. We may never get the answers we want. Our country will spend some time in the next weeks processing this, and hopefully we will move forward confident that most of the time, most of us are surrounded by good people doing good things.
