  1. Reading this, I am thinking how hard it is to stop the adrenalin flow in such a situation, which really shuts off or distorts thinking well. Thankfully Richard you have this space to talk and share this personal story.
    It’s always somewhere else this happens, until it comes home to one personally.The reverberations, the waves flow out from there, ripple, and can last for years. Hello trauma.. I know it. So many know trauma in their lives. Maybe not healing trauma (it can be healed) causes more trauma or can upset a whole life.
    I am happy for you that your son survived, and feel sorrow that Ebeneezer died, so soon in his life. I am happy that your son had the sense and composure,to know when to defy authority. Keeping one’s head is so important, for survival, and to teach our kids to think for themselves, to think of others. Regarding guns there is nothing more to say beyond other than this is one more story about someone, unfit, who should never have access to having a gun, gets one somehow and gets to act out such horror.
    So sorry this has come to your home.
