Today comes word of another tragic shooting at an American school. I have visited this school over the years—in fact, my own father attended Taft Union. At this moment my thoughts and prayers are with the victims, and I wish them a speedy recovery. But how many more shootings must there be in America before we come to the realization that guns and grievances do not belong together?
