So... we fly our flags again at half-staff in honor of another senseless mass murder. This time touching our raw nerves because it took away our young people on a college campus, a place that perhaps represents a place of natural idealism and youthful hope.
The costs of freedom and liberty are not always paid by soldiers fighting for our country.
The costs of liberty are often paid by the innocent bystanders and students caught in the deadly crossfire of another free person gone haywire.
Gun control won't fix it.
More campus police won't fix it.
A locked down, prison style security system won't fix it.
Watch everyone scream out now for their favorite solution.
The only real solutions lie within each individual and their personal responsibility and their responsibility to birth and to properly raise other healthy individuals. And there are still no guarantees in a land of liberty.
