Why?


DSC_0478 - Copy.JPGWhy? The Las Vegas massacre is only a month old—and now we’re hit by 26 shot to death in Sutherland Springs, Texas, another mass killing with a gun wielded by an unstable man.  I write “we” because no one should be immune from these senseless acts. And we should face the reality that our best defense is compassion for human life which must include caring for the mentally ill. How we care is an immense challenge to society. I do know that if we do nothing, more troubled souls will squeeze the trigger on a semi-automatic weapon. (This self-portrait was shot a few minutes after I read about the Texas massacre on my cell phone.)
