Grief and madness and light
Are we a culture dependent on violence to break the monotony of materialism? Have violent films, video games, and the abundance of guns merged into some sort of moral superstorm?
This latest mass shooting has set a new record for the number of victims. Chilling is the thought that gunmen on the edge of madness might be taking note of such records.
At least this very dark day brings some ray of light. Human life in the womb now enjoys the possibility of an increased measure of legal protection. The violence outside the womb remains unaddressed.
