  •  While I too am heartbroken over this (8+ / 0-)

    incident - truly heartbroken - I just can't help but think of the "Canary in the Coal-mine" role that blacks play in America.  Black babies have been getting shot for so long - sigh.  At least I am honest with myself in understanding that nobody really cares about black children.  Hopefully, this horrific Newtown tragedy will result in a better situation for all children.

      listen up now.  As they say, stuff just got real for a lot of people.

    •  You know I said the same thing. Here in Chicago, (3+ / 0-)

      our kids have been getting mowed down for years.  Our communities have been crying out for action.  Crickets.  Our children's lives are worth very little to so many.  

      We are north of 100 kids being shot to death this year alone.  Over 400 people in total.  I can't even do the local news/papers in the morning anymore.  It's like reading never-ending obituary pages.  

      We've already had public officials shot while trying to perform their duties.  No response.  If THIS incident doesn't cause some folks to wake the hell up and do something, I don't know what will.  And the solution is NOT arming everyone in sight.  Enough already.

      BTW, Happy Holidays to you and the fam!  :-)

      End the wars! Single payer now!
