From some this week, I have heard that the tone of the political rhetoric in our country is to blame for what happened last Saturday. For others it is the extreme ends of both the left and the right in our country. But think about it. Who is really to blame for the shootings in Tuscon last Saturday? It was the young man who thought about this, who planned it, and who pulled the trigger. He is the one to blame for that heinous act that took six lives.
On Facebook tonight I saw this posting:
We must allow people to be responsible for their actions. We must not blame the media, pundants, or society in general for unexplained actions of people who are in fragile mental states of mind. However, we must encourage and love those who feel it necessary to shoulder some of the blame for the actions of loved ones. In the end, we really just need to love each other for we are all a part of the family of God.
