Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I sit in stunned silence too. I cannot imagine any pain worse than that of losing a loved one, especially a child. But I do know that desperate people do desperate things, often with horrible consequences. Does it have to be like this? And why? We may have reasons, but we don't have answers.

My heart goes out to all whose lives this tragedy has touched. I grieve with you over this senseless loss of life. How unfair, how arbitrary. Why can't we just get along? Will we ever learn?
