'Again and again'

To the Editor:

Each time there is a tragedy, such as the recent shootings in Wausau, we hear that it is "time to heal and move on" or some version of that sentiment. Each time there is a tragedy, such as the shootings in Wausau, we also hear a call to arms, this time issued by Assembly person Mary Felzkowski from Irma, who wants citizens of Wisconsin to be able to carry concealed weapons, even though they do not have a permit to carry. Then there is a slight pause in the action and we go through the same sad scenario again, and again, and again. Perhaps it is time for us to pause the action and examine the wreckage carefully in an attempt to find the basic flaws in our thinking and construct a new response, that not only promotes healing but reduces the likelihood of violence as well.

Jim Leschke
