Newtown, CT Massacre – Broken Hearts, Broken Minds, Broken Lives

SandyHookBookMany kinds of broken hearts,
All deep searing pain,
Yet none so devastating as seeing
The innocent slain.

Another atrocity, this one worse than any before.  Little kids. And a good deal more little ones dispatched since 1973, ones who never made it to school.
 
In the end it doesn’t matter if the shooter was mentally ill.  It doesn’t matter if he bought the guns or stole them.  It doesn’t matter if gun control laws in Connecticut are sufficient.
