The Pendulum

Another day, another mass shooting.

People again asking “why?”

We will take to the Internet and call for gun control or the need to deal with mental health.
We will debate, argue, ponder, postulate, and politicize.
We will keep asking the same questions, but find no answers. The cycle will continue.
The signs have all been there. We have not seen them. They have been there.

One only need look at social media or television to find the values of society. The hypocrisy, the lies we tell ourselves and others, the general disregard for others, the arrogance, the conceit, the vanity, and the cowardice.
The pendulum has swung so far in one direction that the natural response is to swing so far back in the exact opposite direction.

What we need is balance. We must find the center. Only then can this madness come to an end.
