Society has failed once again to reconvene for a common purpose. Opposite political parties are divisively creating separate (but equally imbecilic) factions.

When will humanity learn that society can't be healed without large masses coming together for a common purpose -- and when is it "time" to address the issue of society's devolution? When another shooting -- possibly even more fatal and tragic --takes place?

Newsflash, people. Society is no longer a innocent little child, nestled within your arms, unable to sprout its wings and fly -- you can't coddle it to sleep and consider its feelings as inherently well meaning, and you cannot allow yourself to be entranced under society's ruling.

People have tried to cryptically and truthfully warn about the fate of society, about what may happen -- about what our children may have to endure in their own lives.

Now here we are, in the midst of another tragedy, and factions are being sectioned off, with nobody -- not one single group -- joining for an absolutely common, mutual purpose.

Do you think society should lend their empathy to both the suspect (who killed himself) and/or the suspect's family (who are likely torn apart by their son's murderous rampage?)

I do not believe the suspect should receive any ounce of empathy from society's humane purposes. We should spit on the grave of the suspect.

But the family is another story. They didn't know that their child was a killer. Just like we didn't know another school shooting was going to happen, the family of the suspect didn't know that their son was going to walk into a school, gun in hand, tearing apart an already divisive nation.

Obviously, we should give both the victims' and the victims' family our sympathy, empathy and prayers. They didn't deserve to be killed, and the families didn't deserve to have their emotional disharmony ignited by the senseless tragedy incited by the gun shells that went through their child's body.

Just a bit of a side note. Guns don't shoot the shells out. They shoot the bullets (projectiles) out. The 'shells' (casings) are typically ejected out of the side or bottom of the gun.

I don't think you'll find much disagreement on the rest of your comments.
