This is in Israel where a teacher is armed, ready to protect the children under her care. Is this where we are headed. Should it?
My heart is breaking right now for the families in Connecticut who lost their children to a massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The horrific nature of this slaughter was just too much for anyone for anyone to comprehend. The questions have already begun. Why? What if guns were banned. What if someone at the school had a gun on them? Could they have stopped him. Was he on medication? What could have prevented this. Where was God? How could He let this happen?
Nothing could have prevented this. Are there ways to make schools a safer haven for children? Yes, and I am sure these will be tossed around in the days following this tragedy. This is not the first time this has happened and unfortunately will not be the last. Society has become a very jaded place where everyone is out for themselves. They see guns on movies and video games and it desensitizes them toward death. This is a culture of violence. These type of killings are becoming more and more common and we need to ask ourselves why. Something in this country is damaged badly and until we recognize and address it, this will continue. The problem is no one knows that what "it" is. It is different in every situation, and it is imposible to point the finger at just one thing. Maybe we need to start looking around us and thinking about others first.
