Please, everyone, we all know the tool used to commit violence is irrelevant. You're preaching to the choir here.
Blame anything you want, society, video games, guns, bread, anything at all, but goodness, never blame the individual!
Blame, while appropriate, and completely understandable, is reactive, and by definition, will never be preventative. What I am asking is what are the root causes, and what can we begin to change in our society, or in our approach to have a positive effect on bringing down the numbers of these incidents?
We can say all day long what the solution isn't, and I've done my fair share of that. What, constructively, can we begin to do, to move this in the right direction?
