‘Recognizing We Have a Problem’

Jonathan Poritsky on the massacre in Conneticut:

The most important thing for us to do today, as a nation, is to recognize that we have a problem, that there have been a string of senseless murders that have made 2012 a depressingly bloody year. And recognizing that we can and must do something to prevent them.

That’s not being political. That’s being an adult.

Agreed. See also Jason Kottke’s great coverage:

And that’s just what Kottke has published as of this writing.

What’s clear is that, as a country, we have a problem. Whether you believe the problem is gun control, or mental healthcare is irrelevant to the problem at hand.

The simple fact is that today, we as a nation, failed to protect our children — that’s on all of us.
