This Time Things Will Change. And They Never Do

 ("Indianapolis Faces Its Third Mass Shooting This Year; Victims Identified By Officials")

What meaning in the words?

What meaning in the numbers?

What meaning in the anguish of the lives that remain, scarred forevermore beyond recognition by the tragedy that touched their very soul, their loss everlasting, their vision of the world never to be the same as it was before?

And so we learn of another shooting, of more death, of more senseless violence. And so we say this time it will be different. This time things will change.

And they never do.

But they will. The people will prevail. One way or the other.

I would be interested in knowing what per cent of the mass shooters were white? I bet almost all- what does that say .......

And what per cent were young, males? So with statistics in hand where do we find ourselves?
