This was a tragic series of events – and we still do not know the origin of the problem. I do not believe this was fundamentally about guns or “campus security” or “Korean-ness.” It appears to be basically about unresolved pain and unchecked anger. I’m still processing and do not have anything particularly wise or insightful, but wanted to share these links because they provide a bit of back story, but only a bit. The school community and this nation need to know more and act proactively to address these kinds of situations.
