    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Good article and the last paragraph pretty much says it all.

    "People who are serious about preventing the next Newtown should embrace much greater funding for mental health, strong laws for civil commitment of the violently mentally ill—and stop kidding themselves that pretend gun-free zones will stop killers. "

    Never look down on anybody, unless you're helping them up.

    Great article. Psychos need to locked up and dealt with. That means we need greater access to all healthcare and especially mental healthcare.
