Look through my window.
Sometimes it is bright and sunny
and sometimes it is dark and scary.
Sometimes when it is darkest
you can see yourself.

In response to yet more endless debates on a serious issue and problem
more kids died in a school. Guns were involved. Again. Both sides of
the issue are getting out there sabres and rattling them. Including on Facebook and other social mediums. As usual I will be one of the folks in the middle. But of
course nothing will change because nobody really offers any solutions
beyond absolute measures that neither side will budge about. So the
likelihood of a repeat of the problem will continue. History doesn't
repeat itself because it is an unbreakable force but because we do not
use it to our advantage. The answer is not in the extreme views. So it
is not in "take all the guns away" and it is not in "give everybody
guns". Both of these views do not move towards a solution. In fact they
continue to get in the way of one. I am posting this just to share my
observance of this issue, not to start a public debate on my page. That
would be pointless. But people DO need to start looking for some kind of
middle ground answers and it will probably show up as something neither
side has even considered as an answer yet. Being myopic about an issue
causes that kind of blindness.
