In the Wake of Sandy Hook...




The shocking massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School has become more than a tragedy.  It is becoming a microcosm for the central problems at the root of the decline of society as a whole.  It seems it took the senseless slaughter of innocents, to bring us this wake up call.  Now, it is incumbent on each and every one of us as individuals to ensure that those who died will not be forgotten, but that their memories will live on in our hearts, as an inspiration to create a better and more compassionate world for the children of the future...




It is not very often that you see the leader of the free world near tears, but that expression of emotion was absolutely nescessary to address a nation's grief that was so profound, no words could even come close to begin to speak to it.

And only by emulating the example of  fallen heroes, can we move the country, and our world  beyond the destructive culture which produces these acts of violence,  and re-align ourselves into a community of brothers and sisters who realize we are not only responsible for ourselves, but for each other.


fallen hero Victoria Soto

Only when we all come to this realization, can we then move forward as a civilization, and a world...




Once again, God bless you all,...  and thank you for your support.

  1. The only consolation is that such tragedies are extremely rare, although less rare in the USA than in Europe. I hope the President succeeds in making it much harder for people to get hold of deadly firearms responsible.

    1. Yes, Gorilla. Hopefully political gridlock can be overcome just this once.

  2. This whole ordeal makes me sick. People keep wanting to blame guns for what happened. Or they blame God for allowing it to happen.

    I blame American society itself. The pressure our society puts on people to fit in, to be successful, or even to just survive in this dog eat dog world can drive the sanest of people over the edge.

    Sure, the gunman suffered a mental illness but what does that say about society? It says to me that his mother, aware of said illness, was afraid to take action because just think of all the gossip and negative attention it would bring. Our cruel society would make it an embarrassment for the mother. And so, to avoid such ridicule, (I'm guessing) nothing was done to treat the illness.

    Everyone has their own opinions, I suppose. I'm not saying mine is right. I am only speculating. But I am saying that I believe to blame guns and God is wrong.

    1. What you say really resonates with me, Gluttondan. We need to get back to loving people for who they are, and stop labeling people as "losers" just because they aren't wealthy, good looking, and/or popular. And I agree, the problem does go much deeper than guns.

  3. It is true that one of the greatest shames and tragedies to come out of this is that it took something like this to boot everyone in the backside. Now we need to not waste this. Don't let it all be in vain.

  4. The media really needs to shut up and learn how to better discuss this monstrosity without prompting further massacres.
