School killings, first shock, then blame and conspiracy

America is crumbling from within and even the wanton killings of the innocent children of Sandy Hook Elementary School have failed to touch hearts hardened over long years of brutality.

The murder of twenty children, mostly five and six-year-olds, in an otherwise peaceful town in Connecticut is conveniently called a “tragedy.” It is much more than that.

I refer to the children only though there were seven adults that were butchered also. Children represent something that is supposed to be universal to all of us, something everyone can understand, parents, grandparents, siblings, the idea of a small child, forty pounds, not yet four feet tall, shot nearly a dozen times with a precision Swiss semi-automatic pistol, this should be a picture all can draw common horror from.
