When news broke at Christmastime five years ago of what had happened at Newtown a friend, a news anchor, called and said with a broken voice: What is the word for what we feel? I thought for a moment. Shattered, I said. We are shattered, all of us. When people in ensuing days spoke of what had been done to the little children in the classrooms, Id put up my hands and say no, we cant keep putting those words in the air, we cant afford it. When terrible images enter our heads and settle in, they become too real, and what is real is soon, by the unstable, imitated, repeated.
When Columbine happened in the spring of 1999, it hit me like a wave of sickness. I wrote a piece about the culture of death that produced the teenage shooters: Think of it this way. Your child is an intelligent little fish. He swims in deep water. Waves of sound and sight, of thought and fact, come invisibly through that water, like radar. . . . The sound from the television is a wave, and the sound from the radio; the headlines on the newsstand, on the magazines, on the ad on the bus as it whizzes byall are waves. The fishyour childis bombarded and barely knows it. But the waves contain words like this, which Ill limit to only one source, the news:
. . . was found strangled and is believed to have been sexually molested . . . had her breast implants removed . . . took the stand to say the killer was smiling the day the show aired . . . said the procedure is, in fact, legal infanticide .. . is thought to be connected to earlier sexual activity among teens . .

Interesting. Too bad there is a paywall.
America turned away from God. America is destroying itself. This is what Noonan’s fellow Liberal elites have wrought.
Las Vegas is no shock. The wages of sin is death.
WE can expect the next, and there will be one, major “attack” to be of mammoth proportion exceening what we have just witnessed in Las Vegas. There are evil people, each one trying to outdo the other. It may even come as an all out war..
America has not turned away from God Almighty and his beloved son, Jesus Christ. The Democrat Party in America is the political nightmare of their followers turning away from GoD and the American way. When human beings turn away from religion to worship themselves, seek to control other people, and break down the civil rules of culture and society nations disappear.
Americans beware, a critical path, choice is coming, stand for Freedom, Liberty, Individual Greatness, Opportunity, Equality for all or, surrender yourselves to the tyrants, dictators, power brokers and destroyers of the American Republic, known as the Democrat Party. Destroy the Democrat Party politically in the Mid-Term election of 2018.
And.....elect Republican Governors in New Jersey & Virginia in November, 2017.
I can hear her insincere, goopy voice as I read this...
I stopped my subscription last year to the anti-Trump rag.
I check their web page periodically and confirm that it was the correct decision to cancel the anti-American fish-wrap.

Peggy Noonan: Weak and sniveling Trump is not as strong as his wife

I find it curious there was never much background on Adam Lanza.
