like most of the nation, my heart is heavy with mourn and sorrow for the innocent lives lost today…..so many people live in fear and pain, fear of what could, or might happen, fear of the unknown…but at the end of it, we are only promised one day at a time…and I for one am working on keeping mindful and being thankful for each moment, one step at a time…not being anxious of things that could, might, or might never happen…don’t let tomorrow’s pain rob you of today’s joy…since in an instant, it can all be gone and then what does it matter?….praying for many people tonight….our worlds will go on, Saturday will come…but for many people the world as they knew it has stopped…in an instant changed forever…..and as unfortunate as it is, life does indeed go on after death..and whether or not you or I are here…. another day will come….so as best as you can, try to stay triumphant and try really hard not to let someone or something rob you of your joy…because in the end joy is all we’ve got….weeping will endure for tonight…but joy will come, maybe not tomorrow, but it will come
On the subject of Economist (off topic, but you haven't started a thread on the shootings yet).
TAP - we're away for weekend and internet connection is slow here. The school killings are usually drug related and possibly mind controlled. The program to get rid of the right to bear arms so they are bound to engineer lots of Aurora and school killings to give them the excuse they are looking for.
Now heavy calls for revoking right to bear arms.
Growing up I thought it was crazy people could bear arms, especially due to the very high murder rates in the US.
But, America was a modern country set up from scratch. The reason that right is their is to stop governments from becoming out of control and tyranising its people. Something that is likely to get worse.
So I can understand why many Americans do no want to give up that right.
Also see great comment from Morgan Freeman, not sure if genuine or fake, but I agree with content.
Also strangely another school attack in China
