My heart is so sad to after a heavily armed gunman, Adam Lanza opened fire on innocent school children and staff at a Connecticut elementary school on Friday, killing at least 28 people, including over 20 children, Friday, Dec. 14, 2012. This is the latest in a series of shooting tragedies that have tormented the United States this year.
Meanwhile the school system is increasing more security and police offers in the wake of the school shooting in Newton Connecticut. But what I am not hearing is, the increase of clinical and child psychologists in the school system. Lets face it, we can increase security officers with guns to protect students and adults. But no matter how many officers we deploy, it will not stop a determined and lost soul to kill innocent kids and teachers. What if we take more time and deploy psychologists and trained teachers, including the school staff to recognized and talk to a disturbed child. Wouldn’t we have a better chance of saving 28 lives? It is easy to put a band aid on anything. It is time to be enlightened and see the deeper issues here. Many students and people are bullied or pressured via other students and even their own parents and adults. If we are not taking time to be concern with these kids and future adults, how can we simply deploy security and not deal with the issue of how the violence was born.
It is time to wake up and we need to at least make it difficult for regular civilians to have access to such high powered weapons. Sending light to the people in Connecticut, especially the family and friends of the shooting victims. May the kids souls fly high in heaven or the most peaceful dimension ever. May their families gain strength from the most horrible tragedy that can ravage anybody’s life, especially a parent.
Peace, love and magnificent light. We need it more than ever in these times.
