Today, a shooting twenty minutes from my school happened in Newtown, CT, and 27 were killed, 20 of them children. My entire school sat around their computers and watched updates while on lock-down, crying and hugging each other, calling family and hoping for miracles for loved ones. The way we all - complete strangers - pull together during a tragedy MMT.

Why do we wait for tragedy to pull together and be compassionate and caring for each other, but so soon forget it. Same thing has happened time and time again, Sept 11 2001 being a prime example. How quickly that feeling of patriotism and mutual aid has been forgotten. From such tragedy, it seems so disrespectful to forget so soon.
