Keeping things in perspective
I would like to know, however, how many young ladies were raped on campuses around the country in the, let's say, a week before the massacre. My guess is that it's far greater than 32. And the emotional scars are as deep as these will be.
This kind of thing happens so infrequently, yet when it does, people go nuts about how to change the culture on school campuses (usually this happens at a K-12 school, but we can now lump colleges in with it). It's like an airplane crash. People freak out about airplane crashes but don't care about the many more thousands who die each year in car accidents.
This is a huge tragedy, don't get me wrong. I can't imagine losing a child, especially in such a random situation as this. But it is something that needs to be considered in perspective, especially with the bigger problems facing young people today.
Just a thought.
