It would be sorely remiss of me if I didn't take a moment to express my sympathy and sorrow for the families and friends of the victims of Friday's school shooting in Newton, CT. Too may innocent lives were lost, most before they really began. What happened was too terrible for me to fully wrap my head around. I'm sure they'll be finger-pointing and many questions. E.g., why wasn't this disturbed young man helped sooner? Did the school's safety procedures fail? Why did mom have such a gun collection? There will likely be a backlash against the gun industry. All of that should be for later. Now is a time to hold your loved ones tight and grieve.
