  •  Sometimes tragedy brings out the best and worst (10+ / 0-)

    of us.  The best means all those who did whatever they could to help -- from giving first aid, to comforting people, to giving whatever pictures or video they had to the police, to simply offering prayers and support.    That is "the best of us."

    The worst is those who, for political reasons, hope that it's someone from "the other side" so that they can attribute this horrendous act to the political opposition as a whole, and say, "See, I told you so!  The other side is crazy and/or evil and/or dangerous!"

    That is "the worse of us," in my opinion.
