As I was watching the morning news today about Newtown , a reporter said something to the effect that they, the news, were getting wary looks from some of the citizens of that town. I said back to my TV, "Gee, ya think?".
Come on now. A huge mass of news related people converge on a town that is reeling from a horrific tragedy, asking parents and children for details of what they saw and how they feel. Even though the names of the poor victims are known and grief is tearing at the hearts of the families and friends of those who died, and the community, the news machine is still there pounding away reporting on the funerals. And this guy is questioning why they're getting looks??
It's time for the press to leave Newtown. They'll never find out exactly why Adam Lanza did what he did. Let the town come together, without intrusion, so they may be as one, offering each other support, comfort and love without a camera trying to record it. Let them grieve in peace, in private, and with respect.
