Colorado becomes scene of America's 2nd mass shooting in 7 days

Columbine. Aurora. And now Boulder.

Driving the news: Colorado,which has endured some of America's most notorious mass shootings, now is the scene of the nation's second massacre in 7 days.

  • The killing of 10 people at the King Soopers supermarket in Boulder — including the first police officer to arrive on the scene, Eric Talley, a father of seven — joins last week's rampage in Atlanta on an agonizing roster of inexplicable American tragedies.

The context: The pandemic year of 2020 had the smallest number of mass killings in more than a decade, according to an AP database.

  • 2021 has already seen an awful reversal of that anomaly.

The Atlanta killings, which left eight dead, brought urgent new attention to the yearlong wave of violence against Asian Americans. The slaughter in Boulder renewed debate on gun control, which wasn't at the top of the agenda of the Democrats who rule Washington.

  • Colorado State Senate Majority Leader Stephen Fenberg (D) told Brian Williams on MSNBC: "We have had a horrific year as a country, as a world. It had finally started to feel like things are getting back to 'normal.' And, unfortunately, we are reminded that that includes mass shootings."

In a preview of the renewed debate, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) — who lives near Sandy Hook Elementary School, site of the 2012 killing of 20 children — tweeted: "This is the moment to make our stand. NOW."

  • The latest: An injured suspect is being held. A handcuffed man, wearing only underwear and with a bloody leg, was led from the market. Police wouldn’t say if he’s the suspect.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
