    I think it’s called desensitization. Very sad when people’s lives are no longer the headlines.

    It is so sad that this wasn’t big news. As you said, just another mass shooting.

    I just went out and found what you were talking about. The page showed each of the 12 victims with a short bit of info about each of them. So difficult to look at each face and each story. Each one ordinary, but each one special.

    Very sad, Kerfe. The painting is a perfect match for this message.

    So much blood in the painting. Yes, compassion fatigue and a sense that it’s inevitable.

    Alas… after a while it’s just statistics… just like traffic accidents and overdoses (the three most common reason for death in the US)

    Great write! Right on Kerfe. Our society is being desensitized to violence, as well as corription in our leadership. We, by and large, just don’t care much any more. We have crawled into our various electronic gadgets and gone away. Don’t bother me with the reality of horror, frustration,brutality. I have all of that right here in my video game, and I can do something about it in my video game – and this violence is FUUUUUNNNN!! WHOOOOOPEEEE!! We are a mess…

    Wow… this is so sadly true. Have we really come to a place where it’s only a side bar? Your painting beats with the heart we all surely must still have. ❤️
