Why Wait for Tragedy?

Newtown, Connecticut, December 14, 2012.  The massacre of schoolchildren and teachers is an act for which there are no words in human vocabulary, a day which will remain an open wound in those directly involved but also a day of pain and shame for all of us.  The only bright spot was an interfaith service held the following Sunday in memory of the victims.  Representatives of all faiths took part in the mourning.

How sad it is that we can mourn together, but cannot seem to come together to make peace.
