Enough Is Way Too Much
Dr. Aaron Spence’s column “A Father and Educator Struggles With Tragedy” (Dec. 21) was underwhelming.
The tactical action he took to review security should be expected. At issue is his statement that we shouldn’t try to blame anyone or anything for the shootings, that what our children need right now is their “daily routine.”
What our children need is for our leaders — educators, politicians, the media, etc. — to have the courage to call for common sense discussions about gun control and violence in our culture. In regard to the former, the NRA had a chance to be part of the solution, but instead they chose to remain part of the problem.
Enough is enough. Sadly, in this case, enough is way too much. It’s time to start talking about the elephant in the room.
