http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2014/03/17/140317fa_fact_solomon I read this piece in The New Yorker today. My overall feeling is one of sadness - of course sadness for the children, sadness for the teachers, sadness for the relatives and friends of the victims. But also extreme sadness for the tormented life of Adam Lanza and his family. There is no doubt that Adam had problems - big problems - which his parents recognized early on and seemingly tried their best to deal with. As a parent, I don't know what I would have done differently had he been my son. I am sorry that anyone would have to go through what this family had to go through. And if I saw Mr. Lanza today that's exactly what I would tell him.
