Whatever the label, there will be no solace. There are unstable people in this world of every nationality, religion, and political leaning. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all band together and mourn tragedies as a nation (and world) of people who are not unstable; who are overwhelminly good and decent; who would not wish a tragedy like this on even their worst enemies?
We needn’t mimic the divisive media. We are better than they make us. We are compassionate enough to not pick a side, but to instead mourn the loss of life without pointing fingers at anyone but the insane person who walked into that theater and killed 12 people. Any labels they slap on him will not justify the killings. Answers will never give us peace, and that is a burden we must bear.
