I Am Adam Lanza’s Mother

Three days before 20-year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother, then opened fire on a classroom full of Connecticut kindergartners, my 13-year-old son Michael (name changed) missed his bus because he was wearing the wrong color pants.

"I can wear these pants," he said, his tone increasingly belligerent, the black-hole pupils of his eyes swallowing the blue irises.

"They are navy blue," I told him. "Your school's dress code says black or khaki pants only."

"They told me I could wear these," he insisted. "You're a stupid bitch. I can wear whatever pants I want to. This is America. I have rights!"

Twenty-seven young school children murdered in an elementary school in Connecticut. Now, three people wounded and the gunman dead in a shooting at a hospital in Alabama. What the hell is going on? I don't understand at all. These incidents are just in the last two days. It seems like there is a new shooting in a public place every week. Why, just...Why? What has changed so much in the United States that people feel this is the answer to their problems?

The gunman/gunmen almost always die during these incidents - usually by killing themselves. Is the idea to take as many people with them as possible? If so, I have to ask again - WHY? Those were twenty-seven innocent five- and six-year-old children. They had done nothing wrong. Why did they need to die?

I seriously don't even want to get out of bed in the morning anymore. I'm afraid of what new horror will have occurred while I was asleep.

But let's not even discuss gun control. Oh, no! All Americans have a God-given right to as many guns as they want. Why, if more people had more guns, things like this would never happen! Yessiree! More guns = less violence. On what planet does that make sense? Not on the one I'm living on, it doesn't. I think we should ban all assault rifles and make it tougher all around to get your hands on a gun. But, hey, I'm just crazy like that.
