Trying to Understand


I was going to post something personal today, then realized this is not the time.  An event occurred in Connecticut that strikes all of us hard in the gut, a senseless act that can’t be rationalized no matter how long or exhaustive our efforts to understand.  We can pray for the victims and their families. This is what we do. But my sadness for these kids and teachers is mixed with anger, because I know there is an answer.  How do you deter a mass-murderer ready to put a bullet in his own head, or a suicide bomber so fervent in his beliefs he is willing to blow himself to bits?  Maybe coming to understand will take a far greater effort than we’ve been willing to make.  Let’s stop this now, before it happens again.

I'm a somewhat retired tractor-trailer driver who loves the movies and always loved to write. I have time now. No excuses. I suppose it's only natural for me to lean toward screenwriting.
