How Did This Happen?!
Look below at the two photographs of Adam Lanza and try to answer the question I posed to open and close this morning's show. How did such a handsome, wholesome looking, bright-eyed little boy turn into the slack jawed, vacant eyed weirdo who slaughtered 20 little kids and 6 adults, including his own mother? What caused the frightening transition? How was it allowed to progress without someone intervening to help him, treat him, and/or get him out of circulation so he couldn't become a deadly menace to others and to himself?
These are questions that must ultimately be answered if we are to minimize, and hopefully eliminate the growing number of mass killings tearing at our hearts and the fabric of our society.
We've had a couple of back-to-back shows this week which tried to address all the questions raised by the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. We've been blessed by knowledgeable guests and the input from our callers who remain the best audience in talk radio!
