I'm sure the law of six degrees of separation applies to many of us. The shooting in Tuscon has touched the country. And our world is indeed a small world. Our good friend Dave had been friends with John Roll since 4th grade. He also knows the Congresswoman and her aides. Anyone with a nine year old has to feel the pain of her family. We are one nation, one family. Let's not be a dysfunctional family. We need to work together without the meanness that has grown too common in life today. It is a time for the rancor of political rhetoric to end. As teachers say: "Model good behavior for our children." That goes for family conversations around the dinner table, neighbors in our communities, pundits on the tube, politicians on a soapbox, and leaders around the world.
