Praying For Newtown

Those of us distant from the tragic events of Newtown, Connecticut crave some kind of answer and, absent that, some kind of action.  There are cries for gun control, increased mental health support for families, more security at schools, and additional attention to the culture of violence that permeates our media—unfortunately, we’ve heard those calls for action before.  Maybe this time policymakers, health care professionals, law enforcement and engaged citizens will listen.   I hope so.
