Sorry, but I can’t think about anything but the 12 lives that were lost in the senseless shootings today at the Navy Yard. These were just regular Federal employees, going to work in an office building. I can’t help but ask how this could have been prevented. I know that none of us have all the answers. If we did, we would never have to witness this devastation again.
Part of me wants to blame the security apparatus, but I can’t help but think that this is yet another argument to telework. I’m sure that security will be tightened up as a result of today’s events, but at some point, you need to be able to trust your co-workers and fellow commuters.
There really is no answer, but my heart goes out to those who lost loved ones in today’s tragedy. The solution to this problem is going to take all of us working together.
