Guns, Mental Health and Compassion

I do believe in thorough background checks for all types of firearm purchases, but I do not believe this will deter certain people from committing heinous acts.

I believe we need better mental health care facilities, and a significant change in our national attitude toward mental illness. But I do not believe that will curtail random violence.

I believe that people, including 20 – something males, need to feel loved, respected, appreciated, and feel that they are part of something precious and alive.

I think a lot of people feel disconnected, broken, isolated,  and some of those people are going to do extreme things in order to get attention.

Why not reach out to the people around us and show them we really do care?
