When I first heard the news of so many children, 20, none over 7, being killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I was so stunned I could feel no emotion, just a kind of numbness. I’m a parent.
Not another mass murder.
Later, on hearing of the heroism displayed by six slain teachers, I was buoyed. Then came the anger, the rage I’ve learned to control, hone, and use as a weapon, the pen being mightier than the sword.
Barack Obama, leader of the most violent nation in world history, dabbed at dry eyes as he practically preached a sermon on the latest domestic killing spree. Hypocritical is an understatement.
