Last Friday night, I lay awake, unable to sleep, wondering about the emotions sweeping through the parents of the children murdered earlier that day in Connecticut. Anguish, bewilderment, helplessness, sorrow, anger?
A thousand miles away, I mostly felt anger. Anger that these kind of horrific events are occurring with increasing frequency and deadliness.
Anger that after the initial outpouring of sorrow, the nation looks away and forgets. Anger that after the recent killings in Arizona, Colorado, Wisconsin and now Connecticut, that no changes have been made in the laws that control the availability of guns.
