Tragedy becoming ordinary
Tue., Aug. 9, 2016
The headline read “Munich mall shooter kills 9; motive murky.” It had finally happened. I didn’t grab the paper and immediately read it. Saddened and horrified at the details, trying to close my mind to the pictures I would see on the evening news.
It had become ordinary, something you read with your morning coffee. “9 dead, shooter unidentified, motive unknown.” The only difference is the number and the place. I am ashamed.
