Santee Shooting: Illusive Answers Waiting

The recurrence comes as a heart rending shock. In reviewing all the commentary, I've noted how deeply reactionary it is, albeit concerned and loving. A shock naturally invokes our calculating minds (and other personal resources) into overdrive, "grasping" for the illusive answer and remedy. Perhaps this deflecting into grasping, is the very manifestation that propels and sustains the recurring difficulties (on whatever front).

Can this shock be marshaled/channeled into bringing each and every one of us into the present moment? That's where the answer (for want of a better word) lies, waiting beautifully and silently for us all.
