Sad America, Sad Colorado, Our Sad Species

July 20, 2012 was a very sad day for America.  The reason I am sad?

Sad that an evil "thing" -- I hesitate to call him a human being -- went on a well planned killing spree among folks out for a good time and a good memory.

Sad that our society has spawned such an evil doer. 

Sad that we are spending even one micro second of time wondering what was wrong with this "thing" that he could think up such an evil act.

Sad that guns will now be blamed for this horrendous act.  Guns are an inanimate object and they don't kill -- "things" that use  them kill.

Sad that someone in the theater didn't also carry a gun and shoot this "thing" at the outset of his madness.

And last, but not least, sad for the men, women and children that were the object of such an evil "thing".  For those killed, "Rest in Peace".  For those that were injured, "Try to get well".  For the many that witnessed this horror, "Remember that life is so very fragile and live it to the fullest each day".  For the rest of us, "Keep enjoying life and don't take anything for granted."

Yes, a very sad day, July 20, 2012.  Patj
