Grandma's Got A Gun

If any doubt exists in your mind that people are getting crazier than usual out there, please consider this article about a recent event in  West Seattle... which will no doubt make the national news.
Grandma comes down the stairs and starts shooting her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews.
An estimated 20 rounds were fired, three family members were killed.
According one interview with a nephew afterward, "there was no emotion in her face."
Based on the attached article that describes Grandma's killing spree, we will be spared a trial  because Grandma killed herself too.
Now everyone is saying "why, why why?"
I know why.
Evidently, she had a history of mental illness.
She went ballistic.
I've been on the very street where this happened, at a house just a few doors away.
I recall when I was in that neighborhood there were children playing everywhere.
For the kids in this family, "play"  is not the key word anymore.
"Pray" is better.
Because every family member who witnessed and  survived this must find a way to deal with the most unthinkable, unimaginable of crimes... committed by the one person in the word responsible for their very existence.
Just follow this link to the Seattle P.I.'s story.
