Dec. 18, 2012 | Another [gun] tragedy confronts our country, and we wonder what we can do and how we can keep this from happening again….So many of us lead quiet lives in our homes. We isolate ourselves in front of our television sets, communicate online, and send out for takeout food…We have lost touch with each other in many ways, and we lack faith in the institutions that used to bind us together, so we retreat to the security and safety of our homes and a tiny group of people. All of us know good people in our lives and communities with mental illness. All of us know decent people in our towns who own guns. And many times these groups overlap. But do week seek them out to ask what is going on? Do we ask questions when we might need to among our families and friends? Do we see someone in need and do something or do we go back to our TV sets hoping some government program comes to the rescue? Read this opinion piece at the National Journal.
