This is our first task: caring for our children. If we don't get that right, we don't get anything right.
That's how as a society, we will be judged; and by that measure, can we honestly say that we're doing enough, to keep our children, all of them, safe from harm?
I've been reflecting on this the past few days, and if we're honest with ourselves, the answer is no.

These tragedies must end. We will be told the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. But that can't be an excuse for inaction. If there is even one step we can take to save another child, surely we have an obligation to try.
Are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard? Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?
