The resounding question from the nation in grief: WHY?
An investigation will bring us closer to an answer.. But will we ever REALLY have an answer for madness??
A friend emailed me saying this, in part:
Mental illness has never been a priority in our government, and these are the results. Change has been long overdue. Maybe now something will finally be done about it.
Perhaps as we argue again about gun control that will be a red herring (the gun were all purchased legally by Adam Lanza’s mother). .. Maybe the real debate should be about mental illness. Maybe we need to rethink priorities in this nation.
It’s worth a thought.
