After 9/11 The Onion published a piece that was one of the best things I have ever read. It was raw, it was profane, it was angry and it grieved. Not to kill each other seems like the simplest to honor of the human contracts and yet over and over and [infinitum] we fail ourselves and each other. It is agonizing. An elementary school - an elementary school is terrorized, bloodied; in that moment, wherever we live, whoever we are, we gasp with the pain of it and the whole world stops.
