a very sincere poem. so interesting what you said about the shooter himself. I was thinking the same thing. He and others like him in the world are victims too. What a crazy world. how can we help all the mentally ill? it boggles the mind!

The shooter is also the result of an impact, there would be no such day for the shooter, if that person got treated right

I can not imagine their pain. It is hard to think of the shooter as a victim, you are amazing for being able to view this in this way. What kind of pain leads to this kind of action?? We may never know.

There are always be the cause and effect factors, every actions always had been motivated or triggered by something, that's what I have thought Richard, and I know maybe not every people could accept and understand about this but for me better not put a blame, thank you for your comment on this Richard :)wishing you a great and wonderful Christmas there :D- hug-Yanny
