A Tragedy

This school shooting over in Conneticut. Such a tragedy. So many innocent lives lost, lives that could have gone on to achieve greatness. I just cannot fathom how someone can be drawn to commit mass murder like that, and I (along with MANY others) am frustrated at the lenient gun laws over in the US. It's such a culture over there, a gun culture, and it's completely ridiculous that such a deadly weapon can be purchased so easily. I really hope that this leads to a reform of the laws.

Also, I bet this would have been classified as an act of terrorism if the guy had been an Arab (a frustration with US media that I could go on and on about)
R.I.P to all those who lost their lives in the shooting.


  1. Yes such an unspeakable tragedy and certainly not to be minimised. However one could tastelessly mention possible double-standards regarding another ongoing (and on the whole seemingly totally justifiable by the majority) mass-extermination of innocents who could also have been achievers of greatness. Oh and it is classified as a woman's right to choose. But I won't mention it.

  2. Yeah, I agree it's a tragedy, but I can't help being annoyed at all the press coverage it's received while thousands of other massacres are being ignored because they're not of Americans. THIS is why I don't want to be a journalist anymore! And totally agree with the Arab thing - Hannah taught us well, didn't she!
