In light of the media attention surrounding this latest tragic shooting I felt the need to make a comment.
As usual people with other agendas would twist tragedy to their own purpose, and once again video games, guns, and the Constitution of the United States of America are under attack.
The United States is a unique bird in terms of our level of freedom and personal liberty, at times those freedoms are paid for in great and terrible tragedy. This is one such time.
There is much anger, rage, confusion, and finger pointing over this tragedy. There is criticism and condemnation from all over the world where sick people with dark agendas seek to twist this tragedy against our love of freedom.
Millions of people play violent video games all night long, many of those own guns. This tragic event, has nothing to do with video games or gun ownership. It has everything to do with responsibility.
Responsibility, that is the true problem with the United States today. So many people have forgotten that with every right, comes an equal level of responsibility.
This young man was in pain, was tortured and ill, people knew it. The police knew it, doctors knew it, family knew it, yet no one took the responsibility to help another human being who needed help so desperately.
What defines the United States, the greatness of this nation, is how we choose to deal with tragic events such as this. How we learn from them, how we come together in support of the families and communities devastated by them.
In the aftermath of this tragedy I would remind my fellow Americans of their responsibilities for the rights of freedom and liberty, and the world as a whole of its basic human decency.
We may be different colors, worship different Gods, hold different beliefs, but when all is said and done each and every last one of us want exactly the same simple thing.
To live, to love, to be healthy, to be happy.
