As a community, we have all been shaken to our core with the Seal Beach mass murder incident. We all deal with stress, pressure, tension and friction on an everyday basis. We have all been in deeply chaotic situations in our life at one time or another, and somehow we seem to deal with such situations by suppressing the related feelings, using substances to numb our awareness of the inner chaos, etc., until one day the nervous system gives in, resulting in some kind of an outburst — in this case, unfortunately, the shooting of eight innocent victims.
There is probably not a single day that goes by without us turning on the news and witnessing senseless acts of violence.
I am sure a lot of you, like me, thought about what went wrong in this case — what might have gone through the gunman's mind when he decided to untimely take away the lives of so many people as a way to cope with his psychological pain? It's clear that his choice of action did not solve anything. It only left his 8-year-old child parentless.
