Grief


I can't find words for what happened in Arizona yesterday.

I've passed along a few articles on Facebook, but arguments over free speech and who is "more culpable" (the left or the right) ensued. I removed one thread altogether.

I'm not into pointing fingers of blame today.

I am grief-stricken that this tragic event has happened, and all I have to say about it today is that we Americans need to do better. We need to be more attentive to making judicious, responsible decisions when we speak. We need to focus more on what unites us, not on what divides us.

That's all I have.
