We need to bear in mind, in this time of national grief and sadness, that the problem lies in the fact that the Sandy Hook shooter needed help. What created this tragedy is not the guns, but the angst felt by the shooter that eventually compelled him to make the decisions he did. Even though we can’t turn back time and we may never learn what caused him to take all those lives, there is something we can do.
What we can do is reach out to anyone we know who is having a difficult time. This help might be a simple smile or hug, or giving them a phone number of a support hotline or counselor, or lending a ear, or inviting them to Christmas dinner.
What simple difference can you make in someone’s life to make the world a better place? (Please share this.)
