“There’s no tragedy in life like the death of a child. Things never get back to the way they were.”
~Dwight D. Eisenhower
Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy:
“Evil visited this community today.”
The community being a southern New England town called Newtown, where a young, 20-year old decided today, December 13, 2012, he had enough.
Entering a classroom where his mother was a teacher, he tragically shot her and 20 students ranging in ages from five to ten years old.
“Our hearts are broken today.”
This short post goes out to the parents who lost their children in this horrific situation, the witnesses, especially the young ones and to our nation that seems to be slowly unraveling.
Since this killing spree involved guns, naturally the public discussions are turning to gun control. I admit my total lack of knowledge about gun control, so I ask, do we need more gun control or less? How can a nation stop the current violence against its own people?
