What is there to say? Another day; another shooting. At least 14 dead, 17 injured, 3 attackers, one of them hit. The police are calling it domestic terrorism.
I don't know what to write about this. It seems wrong to write a breezy post about my favorite holiday tradition or what movies I like to watch at Christmastime. But what can I say that hasn't been said?
Who are they this time? Some group of religious fanatics? Three crazy people with a grudge and guns? Political extremists of one stripe or another?
I suppose we'll find out soon enough. Meanwhile, 14 families are grieving.
We all say "This has got to stop!" How?
I don't know. I wish I did.
I was lying in my room
And the news came on TV
A lotta people out there hurtin'
And it really scares me
Love and mercy that's what you need tonight
Love and mercy to you and your friends tonight
-Brian Wilson, Love and Mercy
