11. These Things Will Happen

We live in a gun loving society. This is just going to happen from time to time.

Like the gun loving folk love to say, cars kill people too, and we're not outlawing cars. So every now an then, innocent people are going to be killed by vehicles. Just a fact of life in a car loving society.

The moral is to live every day as if it could be your last. You may get killed by a car on the way home from work, or someone may shoot and kill you when you stop at the store to pick up dinner on your way.

The reality is, if the tragedies last year in Aurora and especially Newtown don't change anything, nothing will. We just have to live with it and adjust to the possibility that medical science can prolong life to 100, but a gunman with anger can take it away before you hit 10.
