Musings from a Unitarian Universalist minister serving in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts

I continue to be saddened by the tragic shooting in Arizona this past Saturday. In addition to the horror of the deaths and injuries, I am left wondering why this country is so violent. Why? Why is it so easy to have access to a lethal weapon, even if one has a mental illness? And why has political discourse in this country become so angry and violence-prone? Prayers for peace continue.... and prayers for wisdom for all of us to re-think gun control laws in the meantime.
