Like the rolling waves on a beach, mass shootings in this country occur with such regularity that details tend to jumble and merge. From Sandy Hook to Aurora, San Bernardino to Orlando, Las Vegas to Parkland, Thousand Oaks to Pittsburgh, Santa Fe to El Paso, Buffalo to Uvalde, to name a few, we watch in horror. , anger and frustration, then continue with our lives until another, then another claims our attention.
It goes without saying that for survivors, their family members, and to some extent entire communities, nothing will ever be the same after the random horror of a mass shooting. The best a nation can do in some cases – if we persist in our refusal to address the fundamental issues – is to offer compensation for the pain, suffering and pecuniary loss which is the new reality for men, women and children trying to cope with life after mass murder.
