I’ve spent most of the day asking myself that question, filled with such a deep sadness it hurts to my core. Why is this happening? What drives someone to inflict such horror and destruction on perfect strangers? This is certainly not the America I grew up in.
I don’t know the answer. Whether this was home grown or not, it is not simple. But I do know we won’t fix it with a government that has divided us, while replacing decency, principle, and doing what’s right for America and others with greed, corruption, and doing right only for themselves. It’s no wonder despair has replaced hope for so many.
