When will we ever learn? Recently, the world was shocked by the senseless violence that took place in Newtown, Conn. Like a pebble in a pond, the ripples from this tragedy will spread for decades. There will be suicides, divorces and years of therapy for many. The victims' families, friends and their whole community's lives never will be the same. There have been many disasters throughout history, both natural and man-made, that dwarf this incident in loss of life. But when innocent children are ruthlessly slaughtered, it totally defies all logic and really hits home. I can't imagine anything worse. Everyone's hearts go out to the families that have been affected by this unthinkable act.
