The Charleston massacre surprised some around the world who thought an African American President meant the nation's days of racism were history
Everyone from President Obama to the mayor of Charleston has made a specific point of saying the aftermath of a racially-motivated gun massacre of nine innocent and unarmed African Americans is a time for healing. Although they said the right thing, everyone is certainly sincere and they mean well, and they truly hope to comfort the victims' families, survivors, and distressed Americans suffering the same pain, disgust, outrage, and sadness they feel after every other senseless gun slaughter.

One hundred fifty years later, President Lincoln's Great Task remains uncompleted.

Tragically, 20 little boys and girls were also killed, either kindergartners or first graders. The school was populated by 5-10 year olds. This is highly personal. My father-in-law was raised in Newtown, where the village of Sandy Hook is located. The current Newtown population is about 26,000. My wife is a teacher. We have 5 children, 3 grandchildren.
