The news I'm referencing is definitely too much for some sensitive people to take. You can read about it online, for example on the Huffington Post.
Note: part of what I'm about to write may also be a bit much for some!
I know this instance is not "unique", and maybe not even rare - I can't "get into" all the stories of the world, but somehow there are certain moments in time that strike one a bit harder. Sadly, there have been other recent events similar in scope, yet this is merely the one that caused me to start typing ... and I did not want to stop at something like a Facebook status update.
Also, please be aware that I know of the existence of sociopaths and understand what they are. My words are merely the utterance of shock, compassion and emotion; sensitivity; we need more of it.
I wanted to preface with this notes, but know I still welcome any genuine comments about anything - except detailing violent specifics, of course. (I just happened to foresee some cynical questioning. Cynics are great; they are literally some of my best friends, including my soul mate; but you guessed it, that's not me.)
