So, yet another school shooting followed by outrage and the usual call for change. The ugly truth is that we are all the problem, even those of us who don't own guns and who want . We're the problem we because we're too passive. We demand far too little of ourselves as citizens of a supposed democratic republic by the people, for the people, we've been content to watch passively as "our" government, proves ineffectual at solving problems. Voting and typing isn't enough.

We need real, face-to-face and development of relationships. It's messy, difficult, and hard. Sometimes it amounts to very little. Sometimes it changes lives. Little changes, big changes. But if we don't start making the efforts we can be sure that we will fail. But if we get out there and try, experiment, fail, learn, fail again, but keep building. I don't see any other way. Waiting for broken government is just letting others do what they want with our lives.
