Matthew: Too Close For Comfort

Matthew Root: Another school shooting. This time in the engineering dept. at Purdue University where my son teaches. He gathered his students and is locked in his office with them. One person in his building taken into custody. This is scary stuff when your son is sheltered in place with his students. This is too much.

Question: When you consider the exposure of your core and extended family, how do you cope in our culture of senseless, random violence?
