It is an interesting day to be a writer, a day where you want to be able to say something profound that sheds a light on the situation of a man who walks into a school and executes children. I had a couple of ideas – I wanted to write a poem about it; I wanted to write a satire on gun laws; I wanted to write a non-fiction piece on the situation, but I don’t really have the words for it. I may write one or all of these things, but I want it to be a considered response and not some knee-jerk reaction that has me stomping all over the hot button issues of the day.

I am not for gun ownership but perhaps I don’t understand the intricate checks and balances that make it such a contentious issue; I come from a country with no guns and very little gun crime, but perhaps it is true that the prevalence of guns has nothing to do with guns being readily available. I think there is a problem with all these people on psychiatric drugs walking into schools and killing people; there is a problem with so many people on psychiatric drugs.

Kids should not have to die. This kind of thing should not be a possibility. That it is possible means that something needs to change.
