Greyhound bus killing

Dear reader:

After 45 years, there isn’t a whole lot that shocks me anymore. Seen a lot. Read a lot. Heard a lot.

I know that there are some things that happen that defy explanation.

But this is surreal and I am most definitely shocked.

Makes me wonder what has to “unclick” in one’s mind to commit such an atrocity. Was he high on something? Was he a bomb waiting to go off? Did he just have a bad few days? The media will latch on to a reason for this and run with it. Maybe he was abused as a child. Maybe he was off his meds. Maybe he was recently released from an institution. Whatever “reason” is put forth cannot explain such actions.

I am not a spiritual man by any definition and I don’t believe in the existence of a god or of a guiding force. And related to this is my lack of acceptance of the notion of good or evil.

Dunblane, Columbine, Paul Bernardo. Now this.

I may have to rethink the whole “evil” angle.
