Friend’s question

A friend of mine from Italy sent me an email and asked”why do you have so many killings in America? The Americans I meet in Italy seem so peaceful and I cannot explain it.”I have not responded yet .but candidly I do not know what to say.The mass killing of innocent people has become almost as common as the change of seasons.It happens in places of worship schools,universities,restaurants,office buildings and there appears to be no place that is totally safe.

Today there will be endless coverage of the latest massacre and yet we all know that this will not be the last one.It is beyond the realm of sanity to think that you could be sitting in a room at a party or meeting and in the next minute be dead.I never want to merely accept this as a part of our social fabric ,and yet like most Americans I am baffled by this new senseless act of violence.
