When tragedy strikes, we don't get it...

One of our biggest problems in the U.S. is that when tragedy comes our way, unless it involves a foreign country or other entity, we don't know how to respond. We wring our hands in fear that somehow the same thing could happen to us.
 Instead when the tragedy is of a domestic nature like Sandy Hook, we too often resort to the same things that never work to find solutions. We point fingers, focus on difference of politics, differences in faith....differences.... Maybe if we pay attention first to our common concerns, common fears, and common hopes, we will realize that we're more alike than different, and we'll keep an eye on solutions that help us realize those common concerns and hopes.... Why not? So far the other crap isn't working...
