Once again Americans faced the horrors of a school shooting. In this instance seventeen young people were killed and a similar number wounded. And make no mistake about it, being “wounded” by a high-powered rifle is serious. The resultant tissue damage is a consequence of both the projectile and the shockwave of impact.
It was interesting to watch on CNN when one of their reporters gathered four survivors and questioned them almost immediately following the event. These young people provided a mature assessment of the situation and regretted that the vultures were circulating to politicize the event. The reporter in this instance seemed deeply touched and impacted by their reasoned analysis.
