I wanted to write a post on the Connecticut shootings that reflected some critical thought about the tragedy. I wanted to respond to some of the reactions and opinions that are spilling out all over social media. I had wondered what it might look like to offer a spiritual perspective on the shootings, and the abhorrent treatment of virtual reality headset children all over the planet. I sensed a tirade attempting to make its way in to print that for a few moments felt like my most important offering to this world of heartbreak. That tirade has swelled in me a few times over the last few days, and yet.
