"Thoughts and Prayers"
"Things Must Change"
At the end of the day, one word summed it up best, a word that came from the President of the United States.
Because despite all the shock, horror, anger, moral indignation, etc. etc. we as a nation lack the collective will to do anything about our heritage of violence.
Because all this hand wringing is for nothing.
Because too many of our citizens cling to childish, reductive notions regarding our "freedom to own guns".
Because it is Routine.
