What’s Become of the Land of the Free

Today, our country morns for the children and adults killed so needlessly in Newtown, Connecticut. Last week, we heard about a shooting at a mall in Oregon. Before that, it was a shooting in a movie theater.
Our hearts are weeping. We’ve endured too many tragedies. The grief is overwhelming. Who could do such a thing? And, to our children?
No matter how much we try to understand someone’s pain that would make them kill another person, we cannot mentally go there.
So, have we finally hit rock bottom to where the only way to go is up? Have we finally had enough to force this country to do something about it? How can we change as a collective people? How can we protect ourselves and our children?
With freedom comes great responsibility. Maybe we need to go back to the ideals we once had where there was respect for life and for each other. Maybe we need to have more compassion for one another and become a society who looks out for one another.
What’s become of the greatest country on earth? What’s become of the land of the free and what can each one of us do to make it a better world?
