Could it have been prevented? What is it that twists a mind so much that the individual plans murdering innocent people? It is surreal....
I wonder....was there indication that the killer was mentally ill....my sense is there certainly was. Was their behavior ignored by family? What does it say about the lack of assistance for mental health? Cuts were made years ago....how many tragedies does it take to change gun laws....to increase mental health support....to protect the innocents?
Listening to the surviving children tell the story was heartbreaking as well. They have lost their innocence....they will NEVER be the same.....they have been robbed of their childhood.....how can they possibly understand. It's difficult enough for adults to comprehend.
It angers me, confuses me, makes me question "WHY, LORD? WHY!!!!" Questions with no answers, yet questions that have to be asked.
Let us join our hearts and minds and hold the surviving families close. If enough love is generated, perhaps they will feel the loving presence surrounding them.
