"I am Adam Lanza's mom," says woman...
at 4:35 PM
Here is a powerful letter by a mom who says she related to what Nancy Lanza may have experienced with her son, Adam. I think she brings an interesting conversation to the table.
I think she makes excellent points that we don't have a system for dealing with mentally ill people, and I have experienced it myself.
Several times in my life I have encountered people who I felt were a concern to society, I reached out for help only to find out that unless they committed a crime, there was nothing that we could do proactively. It's part of protecting our freedoms.
How do we protect our freedoms yet care for the mentally ill? It's a difficult topic to say the least.
