Column: Was it possible to avoid tale of two towns, two tragedies, two endings?




This is a tale of two towns and two tragedies, a world apart, told in just one story.

And although you are thinking you have already overdosed on tragedy in the past several days, you will want to read and ponder this tale.

It isn’t really about sadness in the lives of other folks. It is about the sadness in the lives and the ways of us all.

Our tale begins on the morning of Dec. 14, 2012. An armed and troubled man burst into an elementary school, pulled his weapon and began horrifically and savagely attacking innocent little children for no apparent reason.

The attacker was identified by authorities as Min Yingjun, age 36.

Also, the attacker was identified by authorities as Adam Lanza, age 20.
