My friend and former White Wolf writing colleague has written an article about his experience as the father of two of the children at Sandy Hook Elementary school yesterday. It is a great, but highly triggering, read. If you are susceptible to despair at the description of high degrees of mental suffering and anguish at the unknown, I suggest skipping the read. But he’s a great writer, and he’s worth checking out.
This piece, by Anarchistic Soccer Mom, is about mental illness in her thirteen year old son, Michael. She urges us as a nation to do something about mental illness, serious mental illness, in this country. It’s easy to talk about taking away access to guns, sure. It’s harder to do something about the real problem, which is crazy people.
