Colorado and Beyond

First and foremost, my prayers go out to the families in Colorado and to every other family in the world reeling from the loss of a loved one today and everyday.

That being said, I’m done. I’m done acting shocked every time a “random” act of violence happens in the United States. Violence is a part of our history, our foundation, our culture, and every part of our American fabric. Unfortunately our unwillingness to have open and honest dialog about the American condition means that these vices (drugs, violence, educational disparities, racism, sexism, etc.) will continue to prevent us from rising to the apex of our collective potential.

We have to do better.
