The why is the most haunting questionPublished 12:20pm Thursday, December 20, 2012
The seemingly senseless act of violence this past week in Newtown, Conn., only seems so because we do not know, and may never know, what drove this young man to such desperation.
What we do know, or have heard through the media, is that the shooters own mother, who was apparently his first victim, had herself purchased the weapons used in the crime. She, it seems, was intent on protection against some unknown boogeyman. Turns out the boogeyman lived in her house.
Just a few days prior to this incident a church pastor, no less, shoots his own boogeyman who turns out to be his granddaughter.
Paranoia may destroy ya?
I believe it was Jesus Christ himself who warned his followers: He who takes up the sword will likewise die by the sword.
