It is every parents nightmare. We are filled with horror at the thought of someone injuring our children. The strength of that reaction is why brave and honorable men put their bodies in the way of bullets during the Parkland, Florida murders. That is why female staff died protecting “their kids” in the Sandy Hook attack. Those students meant more than life itself to brave teachers and law enforcement officers. Unfortunately, our strong feelings allow us be manipulated by the news media. The truth is bad enough, but we were lied to and told that mass murder is an epidemic. Let’s separate the truth from the lies.
