As I have seen a discussion in the past few days turn from pure hatred towards those that killed innocent people to blaming politicians or guns or whatever the reason is just plain sad. People love to boil everything down into one short and simple soundbite that is the sole reason of why things are happening that everyone can't stand.
The media loves to put a soundbite to a tragedy because then they can hook people into following their newscast. The more people that follow, the more viewers they have and the more money they can make. I get it. Its an entertainment business and if you don't entertain people, they switch the channel. It is one reason, we shut off cable.
Everyone wants to believe that peace on earth begins with other people. Unfortunately that is not the case. We are all adding to the problems of the world whether you believe it or not.
