Obama's Speech Thoughts

Why do this keep getting mentioned and yet nothing is done about it? That being the mental health system in America, which is rife with problems and only gets attention when some does something foolish, usually with a gun. Why must people die for this to get attention. Discussing the Tuscon shootings at dinner, my dad said he thought the guy might be schizophrenic. He's definitely the right age and the was apparently talk of testing him before he left school. How much heartache might that have saved?

I loved Obama's speech tonight, but that just struck a nerve. Also, the story of Christina Taylor Green may be what people remember most. The rain puddle comment broke my heart. I hope people remember the spirit of this speech, even if they don't like the man who gave it. This is the leader we need.
