Virginia Tech

What a terrible tragedy.

I think the answer is not gun control, nor arming everyone. I think the answer lies more in intervention for people with mental illness. (Slate.com has a good article about this approach.) I think maybe there's no one "answer".

It's a very sad thing. Borrowing from the Buddhists, I'm personally trying to use this as an opportunity to become more comfortable with my own mortality, and the mortality of those I love; to meditate on impermanence. Yes, it would be better not to have this opportunity for meditation.

Yes, it is a very sad thing, and I'm sorry it happened.
