After San Bernardino shooting, we need more empathy, fewer guns

( CNN) Only four martyrs.

In San Bernardino, California, this week, an armed guy burst into a classroom with a firearm and inaugurated fuelling. As the news of another mass shooting in a school wheeled over the country, sees of Sandy Hook Elementary School, where so many died, filled into my spirit. When I sounded only 4 beings had been shot, I relax a little.

There’s something wrong about being alleviated by a small number of beings being killed. It’s a sign that the constant deluge of assassinate stories have begun to harden one’s feeling. It’s a defence reaction and it worked for me at first, facilitating me get through my epoch. Later my cruelty reverted, accompanied by shame at my previous comfort, as we learned the killing had taken place in a special education classroom.
