In Memoriam

Such heartbreak, the senseless shootings. 
We hold in the light, all the people, and their loved ones, friends, family & community
 mourning the loss of their lives in the most recent shooting spree in the U.S.
May we stop asking Why, and start serious work on How we can make it stop. 

With a heavy heart, posting the names of those who were killed.

Nancy Lanza, 52, mother of Adam Lanza, was a "prepper."

I admit to not knowing the term before now so for the uninitiated, a prepper is someone who thinks the world is coming to an end. Not because aliens from Rigel 7 have landed in Yellowstone and want our water for their dry planet but the economic system and government is collapsing.

Ms. Lanza would go to the only bar in town and regale people with her beliefs that we should be storing food, water and guns in order to survive the coming collapse.

She told everyone who would listen about her gun and rife collection which included automatic assault weapons like those used by the U.S. military in Afghanistan.

In short, she was a kook.

There's a Bible expression that says, "if you live by the sword, you can expect to die by the sword." Well, Nancy Lanza imparted her nutty beliefs to her son and her shot her on the face whilst she slept.

Maybe Nancy Lanza should've had a goldfish. She was unsuited to be a parent.
