Sick Society

Five years after Columbine, another angry male student has shot up a school, killing nine people and himself, in Red Lake, Minnesota. As before, there will be hand-wringing, a tightening of policies against guns, and new lockdown procedures. Then we will go on as before, wondering what is happening to our children. We apparently cannot see that our society itself is sick, that kids who have nothing positive to believe in will believe in anything, without respect for human life. If we don’t address this spiritual sickness, this kind of unimaginable mayhem will become increasingly imaginable.
