My Fellow Americans,
We wake up today in the aftermath of unimaginable horror. We wonder how we’ll ever feel safe sending our children to school again and how we’ll even discuss these events with them. There’s no way to protect them from the stories; if you don’t tell them, someone else will.
By the dawn of the next day, however, I believe that there is more than one criminal responsible for perpetrating horrors upon us. Yes, a 20-year-old committed a heinous act that will affect the families, friends and communities in Connecticut. But the horrors the rest of us are facing are mainly caused by another perpetrator: the media.
They have gone too far.
