I am shocked by the events in Orlando, Florida. This is unspeakable. This is unacceptable. This is not surprising. We are becoming an increasingly violent society. Our violence is fueled and even encouraged by political diatribe. The NRA holds unimaginable power. Those among us so gentle they help bugs cross sidewalks and those among us not quite that gentle but nevertheless trying to be that gentle understand that no one except possibly our armed forces ever needs an assault weapon. On social media we cry for an end to violence. We condemn human slaughter. Our voices seem lost in the winds of violence.
