I am conflicted.
Last week, mainstream media exploded with the tragic story of twenty-six people who lost their lives to a – literal – madman.
Social media imploded with a smorgasbord of response –
Shame on him. Shame on his mother. Shame on all those who said the wrong thing at the wrong time.
Shame on guns.
Shame on all you who carry guns.
Shame on gun control.
Shame on the President.
Shame on all of you who voted for the President.
Shame on all of you who didn’t.
Shame on all of you who don’t feel shocked.
Shame on all of you who don’t feel anything.
Shame on all of you who feel anything different than I do.
That’s a lot of shame.
