Society Gone Mad: We Need Empathy Now More Than Ever

While we are busy showing empathy to the victims’ families and friends, perhaps we should also wonder what kind of horrible experience these shooters have encountered in modern society that could evoke such rage in a young man for him to give up his entire future just to kill…

If we were capable of showing more empathy to the ones that were isolated, depressed, awkward or maybe just too shy, wouldn’t this society become a more caring place for all of us?
