Stunned Americans grapple once again to make sense of the six minute shooting carnage in Parkland, Florida, perpetrated by a “troubled” 19 year old, who had operated under law enforcement’s radar. Stoneman Douglas high school students anticipated this tragic event that has sparked the ensuing debate as how to end these senseless massacres. We’ve seen this rerun before. Once the pain, anger, speculation and viscerally charged comments subside, perhaps a precious few will peer beyond the beguiling symptoms that we’ve seen since Columbine, and explore the underlying roots of this upheaval.
