The banal reporter was brief:
“Parents of the shooter express their grief.”
and then their attempt at grace:
“We don’t even know how this took place.”
But I bet they rushed right back to their TV
to find out what their excuse should be.

Youe words brought me back in time.
As I have experienced growing up and life in Northern Ireland, acts of bloody violence were commonplace. I always had it in my mind that I could never forgive anyone who would have damaged, or taken the life of a loved one of mine. My position remains unchanged....
