Lost

I was driving home, after attending what, let’s say was a successful sortie for work for next year (well some small part of next year anyway) when I heard some snatches – on local BBC Radio about a shooting in the USA.
Worse: involving children in a school!
I neglected to say that, while I am close to my own neighbourhood, I did not recognise any of the roads or landscape features for some miles, probably taking wrong turns while, hopefully still obeying, like an automaton, the road rules.
Once home the full senseless fullness of horrible facts became astonishingly clear.
I can think of no reason, whatever the provocation, for violence towards children … but violence to this degree?
For what it is worth (probably less than half of nothing, of course) my heart goes out to the people connected to this insane tragedy, in any way.
In a school … for God’s sake!
I have no solutions to offer, find myself …

… lost – all roads up!
